DNS Server is down and will not come back
I had the DNS server on my CENTOS 5 Server working, even though the Windows clients were not resolving addresses... Via a peer (Who was supposed to be a BIND/DNS Expert) I removed several as he called them, not necessary master zones from my DNS Server. These are like the ones called localdomain, 127.0.0, 0.0.0/127, etc.
Now I get the following when I try to start rndc from my linus server and it will not go away.
[root@logmain etc]# rndc reload
rndc: connect failed: connection refused
I really need to get this DNS Server working and honestly I'm not familiar enough with Linux based BIND/DNS so I may be over my head on this one.
that's an *rndc* error
...that's rndc telling you it cannot connect to the bind server. (Since you didn't specify a bind server with the rndc command, it's trying 127.0.0.1.)
But if your Bind isn't actually *running* then rndc cannot connect to issue a reload command.
I know nothing about CentOS. If you have /etc/init.d/bind -- or whatever your os's paradigm is -- can you just '/etc/init.d/bind start' to see what you get?
...is Bind in the process table?
.../etc/init.d/bind status if your OS has that paradigm?
