rndc: get key definition: not found error


I get an error that I don't understand when I try to manually bind my named.conf file. I use the command
Code:
 rndc /etc/named.conf
which generates this error
Code:
 rndc: get key definition: not found
. The named.conf file has the followin section near the start of the file
Code:
 include "/etc/rndc.key";
options {
                 directory "/var/named";
                 allow-transfer "
I cannot see what is wrong with the file nor why I get the key definition error. Can anyone help?

If I'm not mistaken, you need to generate a key, in order to access named data. Rmdc uses a key in the /etc/rndc.key to authenticate rmdc commands. Do a man on rndc(8), rndc.conf(5) and rndc-confgen(8). -mk
