DNS configuration


hi i configured my dns to point to a hypothetical domsain i created but whenever i restart the named service it fails to restart. So i renamed the domain in the reoslv.conf file and later created a new zone file to point to my domain whci i called domain.cxm.
Can someone help me understand why the service is not restarting after making my changes?

The error is probably in /etc/named.conf. The command /usr/sbin/named-checkconf can be used to check for syntax errors.

I have no errors

i have debugged it but i still get the error. You see after configuring the named.conf file to point to my domain 192.168.42 the service wont restart for the changes to take effect. Another question i had was what does the copying of the /var/named/named.local to my domain file /var/named/named.192.168.42 have anything to do with my set-up? i just read that somewhere

OK, then check to see what error named is logging to /etc/messages.

i think u need to check if u really configure it correctly.
moreover is not only named.conf that makes dns work propaly.
u have to see if u have also install caching-nameserver to
so u will be abble to config some other parts of dns to

u need aproximalle 4 config files to configure

named.conf
forward and reverse zones
named.rfc------
/etc/hosts

so check well if everything is ok

Again, you need to SPELL OUT YOUR WORDS. And this thread has been closed now for SEVEN YEARS. The OP posted that they already had DNS working, but it had errors upon restart.

Seriously?? Did you read what you posted?? It's "you", not "u", "your" not "ur", "thanks", not "thanx".
