FreeBSD Bind not working


in the first step on setting up bind you have to run this command in the /etc/namedb directory
Code:
#sh make-localhost
but i get an error
Code:
make-localhost: Can't open make-localhost: No such file or directory
what can be cauing this because i have just installed it freshly (on a vmware machine) could that be the problem if not then what do i need to do to get it to stop doing this and make it do what it's suppossed to

thanks for you help

people keep telling me about the handbook insistently. But i found the answer and it wasn't in the handbook. Turns out that the method i am using is obsolete it no longer exists in the current release of FreeBSD.

Hi, I don't recognize you and don't / didn't recall ever referring you to the Handbook for anything. What you were attempting (in the first post) was nonsensical, so I thought it would be prudent to get back to the official docs and revisit any assumptions.

Glad you figured it out.

yeah that was only the beginning now we are having problems even after hours of research that seems to be getting us no where

here is the /etc/rc.conf file
Code:
moused_enable="YES"
gdm_enable="YES"
gnome_enable="YES"
hostname="baronobeefdip"
networkinterfaces=pcn0
ifconfig_pcn0="inet 192.168.1.53 netmask 255.255.255.0"
named_enable="YES"
this is the /etc/namedb/named.conf file
Code:
options {
         directory        "/etc/namedb/master";
         pid-file         "/var/run/named/pid";
         dump-file        "/var/dump/named_dump.db";
         statistics-file  "/var/stats/named.stats";
         listen-on        { any; };
         allow-query      { any; };

zone "baronobeefdip.com" {
type master;
file "master/baronobeefdip.com.db";
};
and heres the /etc/namedb/master/baronobeefdip.com.db
Code:
$ttl 3H
@      IN      SOA      baronobeefdip.     root.local.(
               2        ; serial number
               3500     ; refresh seconds
               3500     ; retry seconds
               3500     ; expire seconds
               3500 )   ; minimum seconds
;
baronobeefdip.com.      IN    NS    baronobeefdip.
baronobeefdip.          IN    A     192.168.1.53
i check all the files to see if they all work and have no syntax errors but when I run this command
Code:
# nslookup baronobeefdip.com
i get this
Code:
;; Got SERVFAIL reply from 127.0.0.1, trying next server
whats going on here i thought it should have worked

SERVFAIL... couple things:
  1. What's in /etc/resolv.conf?
  2. What does $ sockstat -4l show?

---

BTW, for better lookup utilities, I recommend either dig(1) or host(1).

i thought that stuff was suppossed to be automatically put into the resolv.conf file, especially when you ping the DNS server from another box that doesn't know where or what it is.

Method

Hi I'm somewhat new to FreeBSD. However, I've come across the same problem watching an old tutorial. How can I resolve this issue? I just want to start a DNS. Like I said, I'm a noob, so a video would be greatly appreciated if someone can find one.
Thanks!
