Will do. BTW, what are the benefits or drawbacks of running my own nameserver?
Also, It looks like the issue is that it's not finding named.conf file in /etc/bind. I've looked and the file is not there.
Apr 7 09:04:36 server1 named: loading configuration from '/etc/bind/named.conf'
Apr 7 09:04:36 server1 named: none:0: open: /etc/bind/named.conf: file not found
Thanks again for your help.
