problem with install BIND9 !


i install BIND 9.2.1 by following below instructions :

1- tar -zxvf bind-9.2.1.tar.gz
2- cd bind-9.2.1
3- ./configure
4- make
5- make install

i expected to have named.conf in /etc ,but there isn't any one.
and also there is no zone file in /var/named .

why is it so ?
i have to mention i had bind9 in rpm form and uninstall it using rpm -e bind and then tried to install it from source code .

would you help me ? i have taken my time from the first hours i am at work.



tnx friends.

You have to create /etc/named.conf where you define the domains you're authoritative for and /var/named/domain1.com /var/named/domain2.com... where you assign IPs for the hosts of each domain.

yes but the named file will be put there , that is the main file which by running it the namde service will start and the DNS server will work , but there are some configuration files and i think the main one is named.conf which should be by default in /etc path . the zones are defind there ,i mean we define what zone we have in /var/named path . and in /var/named the zone files which contain data record for DNS will define .
