Problem With DNS


HI
I've a problem to setting up the dns, I've a domain pak2us247.com and I hosted it from dns. But it's not getting ping. When I checked the log I saw unexpected token error. Then I tried to restart the service got this error

"Stopping named: [ OK ]
Starting named:
Error in named configuration:
dns_rdata_fromtext: pak2us247.com.hosts:2: unexpected token

Can somebody tell me how can I fix this please.

Take a look at the beginning of pak2us247.com.hosts (bind complains for an error in line 2), or post the file here.

Regards

This below is the ".named.conf" file

named.conf
----------------------------------

acl common-allow-transfer {
none;
};
options {
directory "/var/named";
pid-file "/var/run/named/named.pid";
auth-nxdomain no;
};

zone "." {
type hint;
file "/etc/db.cache";
};

key rndc-key {
algorithm hmac-md5;
secret "8CETGhosPFGuIpVM1MWDhA==";
};
controls {
inet 127.0.0.1 port 953 allow { 127.0.0.1; } keys { rndc-key; };
};

zone "pak2us247.com" IN {
type master;
file "pak2us247.com.zone";
allow-update { none; };
};

-------------------------------------------

Problem with zone file

Its clearly visible in the error , its a problem in the configuration of zone files, check your fwd & rev zone

Use checking command to the configuration of Zone files, this command compiles it and give you the exact line no. from where the error occurs.

Google it for the command

Bind complains for an error in line 2 of pak2us247.com.hosts.
According to named.conf you've posted, there is no such zone filename. The filename for the pak2us247.com zone is pak2us247.com.zone.
I think you look at the wrong named.conf

Check with

service named configtest


looks like, as mentioned, your zone file name doesn't match what you say in named.conf.
You may also have errors in the zone file(s).
