HI,
i am configuring named. so i have placed named.rfc1912.zones this file by using cp  command from /usr/...../doc to /etc
I can confirmed that named.rfc1912.zones is actually copied in /etc/ directory
[root@workshop etc]# locate named.rfc1912.zones
/etc/named.rfc1912.zones
/usr/share/doc/bind-9.3.4/sample/etc/named.rfc1912.zones
 but  when i am starting named its giving me this error
[root@workshop etc]# locate named.rfc1912.zones
Starting named:
Error in named configuration:
/etc/named.conf:63: open: /etc/named.rfc1912.zones: file not found
                                                           [FAILED]

permission is same as /etc/name.root.hits
it can see named.root.hits but it unable to see named.rfc.1912
don't understand why!!

Maybe you are running named chrooted. Which means that the root dir for named is /var/named/chroot (depends on distribution) and that you should put named.rfc1912.zones  in /var/named/chroot/etc in order for named to find it.
