DNS Bind named.conf file not found at /etc/
Hi all
Hope all you are fine.

I am installing bind in my learning server (using oracle virtualbox).

I am using RHEL5.

The service is running:
chkconfig --list named
named 0: off 1 : off 2 : on 3 :on 4 :on 5 : on 6 : off

The following programs have installed-
1. bind-utils-9.3.3-7.el5
2. bind-9.3.3-7.el5
3. bind-libs-9.3.3-7.el5

The problem is while configuring bind i do not found the named.conf in the /etc/ location. also not found the rndc.conf file in the same location.

Is there any other package should i install?

Now what should i do. Please help.

Make a search:

~# find / -name "named.conf" -print
If it's not found, then you will need to manually create it.

my man file says:

The default configuration file.

but mine is actually at /etc/bind/named.conf
