recursion error

Hi all

i was a recursion error on my dns server and i'm trying to fix this but can't get through. We are running BIND.

I tried to add the following last 2 lines in my options and the acl for my ip addresses but i cannot use the service after restarting. The service restarts but cannot resolve domains.


options {
        directory "/var/named";
        allow-transfer { "my 2nd dns server IP"; };
        allow-recursion { "int-clients" };
        recursion no;


acl int-clients {

do you have a zone entry for the root zone and an appropriate root.hint file installed?

try with this: (check some semi-colon missing)

acl int-clients { X.X.X.X/24;  X.X.X.Y/24;  };
options {
        directory "/var/named";
        allow-transfer { "my 2nd dns server IP"; };
        allow-recursion { int-clients; };       <---- you missed a semicolon here
