DNS Bind will not start after a record modification.
Posted on 2006-04-28
I have a simple one for everyone today that I am hoping is provided a simple answer.
I have a Red Hat box, that is running Webmin for all my DNS Binding. In attempts to update the records correctly yesterday I went into a zone and made changes to me MX records and to my PTR records. I think stopped the BIND server and went to Restart it.
Now every time I push the Start Button it goes through the motions real quick like it is trying to start, but then it just simply comes back to the same page and won't to be started again. I am not overly familar with Linux or Webmin, but I feel like it has to be something I changed for it to not start up now.
I have tried removing all the added records and restarting it, but that didn't have any affect on it either. Since this is my primary DNS server for multiple business sites I find it urgent to get it fixed due to the masses banging on my door :); however, I hope it is not too difficult just difficult for me.
Well that is the short of it, if you have any suggestions at all I would be very grateful!!
Thank you guys!!!
