Unhappy rndc: get key definition: not found

I have tried to manually apply my named.conf file in bind 9. I used the new

 rndc /etc/named.conf
command and I received the following error;

 rndc: get key definition: not found
I seem to be stabbing around in the dark ... the man page doesn't seem to help me. Does anyone know why this might not work?

Follow these steps and that should fix your problem. To summerize. You must define the keyname of your RNDC key.. the default is just key, but it should be changed to rndckey .. make sure this is changed for all occurances.. ALSO change it in the named.conf.

Also read up the "Using RNDC" section in the Official Redhat Linux Reference Guide. This will be a big help. Here's a link..
