Question DNS Zone file help


hope someone has the answer.......

Heres the problem:

I cannot figure out where the file is suppossed to reside, from what I have read it may go is /var/lib/named?

Also when running named -u named -g I get the following msg:

21-May-2007 13:12:00.899 zone 40.157.34.207.in-addr.arpa/IN: loading master file 207.34.157.40.zone: file not found

So is it looking for a file named :"207.34.157.40.zone" and if so what directiory is it supposed to be in?

I have the rest running ok but it seems that the Reverse Zone is the issue....?

thanks to anyone who can help!

You should take a look at /etc/named.conf for a line starting with "directory", which points to the directory where the zone files are. Also take a look for the zone definition, since you can override there the global directory setting using an absolute path to another directory. Mind that if you run named chrooted then those paths are relative to the chroot directory.
Note also that those dirs must be readable/writeable by the user running named (that's named in your case).
