NAMED won't start CentOS 5.1 (BIND 9.x)
Posted on 2014-04-22
I have been running a very old version of RedHat as a DNS server for our organisation but it's been showing signs of age lately, so built a box using CentOS 5.1 and rsynced all the zone files to the new server.
When I try to start named with service named start I get
Error in configuration followed by a list of all zone files and then FAILED
named.conf is in /etc/
zone files are all in /var/named/
There is no hint as to what could be causing the error - i.e. it just says Error in configuration but this is not followed by anything which clarifies the error.
Can anyone help me with this please?
