I am running named-checkzone

named-checkzone foo.edu foo.edu.db


I am seeing this:

zone foo.edu/IN: csr.foo.edu/NS 'diamond.csr.foo.edu' (out of zone) has no addresses records (A or AAAA)

$ grep -i diamond.csr.foo.edu *

foo.edu.db:csr.foo.edu.         86400   IN      NS      diamond.csr.foo.edu.
foo.edu.db:diamond.csr.foo.edu. 86400   IN      A       128.163.154.200

Is this an issue? I am failing to understand why it has an error

or should I grep a different way

grep -i foo.edu.db *

Bind is version is
BIND 9.7.1-P2

Nothing wrong with the entries you have there, I doubt you can share the original zone file with us?

The NS record is for csr.foo.edu but the zone is foo.edu. BIND would consider csr.foo.edu to be a subdomain of foo.edu, which it appears may not have a nameserver listed.

Don't know the answer to how to tell it not to run the check- but why would you not want to know that your nameservers are not set up correctly?
