reg named.conf configuration file of BIND DNS
I have installed the Bind DNS package in Fedora Core 6. The Bind
version is 9.3.4.
The /etc/named.conf which is provided by caching-nameserver is
But another file is there , named.rfc1912.zones which is having
format as /etc/named.conf .
If I rename named.rfc1912.zones to named.conf and restart the
service , it fails with the following errors.
Stopping named: [FAILED]
Error in named configuration:
zone localdomain/IN: loading master file localdomain.zone: file not
_default/localdomain/IN: file not found
zone localhost/IN: loading master file localhost.zone: file not found
_default/localhost/IN: file not found

zone 0.in-addr.arpa/IN: loading master file named.zero: file not found
_default/0.in-addr.arpa/IN: file not found
f I configure named.rfc1912.zones , named works fine and name
for the configured domain.
So, I want to know whether with the current versions of bind ,
named.conf has been
renamed to named.rfc1912.zones .
Is it O.K to use named.rfc1912.zones as the bind configuration
If that is not the case , please let me know how to configure
with the later versions of Bind.
With Thanks in Advance.
