Exclamation Error while initiating named & fail2ban


I configured my VPS which is running on CentOS 6 x64 with the help of Falco Timme's excellent tutorial.

Everything was just fine, except 2 errors those I have mentioned below.

1. When shooting "/etc/init.d/named start" I got the following error.

"/etc/sysconfig/named: line 5: --: command not found"

But the service was started.

My named file seems as follows: (After editing as per Timme's tutorial)

# BIND named process options
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
# Currently, you can use the following options:
ROOTDIR="/var/named/chroot" -- will run named in a chroot environment.
# you must set up the chroot environment
# (install the bind-chroot package) before
# doing this.
# Those directories are automatically mounted to chroot if they are
# empty in the ROOTDIR directory. It will simplify maintenance of your
# chroot environment.
# - /var/named
# - /etc/pki/dnssec-keys
# - /etc/named
# - /usr/lib64/bind or /usr/lib/bind (architecture dependent)
# Those files are mounted as well if target file doesn't exist in
# chroot.
# - /etc/named.conf
# - /etc/rndc.conf
# - /etc/rndc.key
# - /etc/named.rfc1912.zones
# - /etc/named.dnssec.keys
# - /etc/named.iscdlv.key
# Don't forget to add "$AddUnixListenSocket /var/named/chroot/dev/log"
# line to your /etc/rsyslog.conf file. Otherwise your logging becomes
# broken when rsyslogd daemon is restarted (due update, for example).
# OPTIONS="whatever" -- These additional options will be passed to named
# at startup. Don't add -t here, use ROOTDIR instead.
# KEYTAB_FILE="/dir/file" -- Specify named service keytab file (for GSS-TSIG)
# DISABLE_ZONE_CHECKING -- By default, initscript calls named-checkzone
# utility for every zone to ensure all zones are
# valid before named starts. If you set this option
# to 'yes' then initscript doesn't perform those
# checks.

2. When shooting "/etc/init.d/fail2ban start" getting an error as follows :

Starting fail2ban: Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/fail2ban-client", line 429, in <module>
if client.start(sys.argv):
File "/usr/bin/fail2ban-client", line 352, in start
File "/usr/share/fail2ban/client/configurator.py", line 58, in readEarly

File "/usr/share/fail2ban/client/configreader.py", line 73, in read
config_files_read = SafeConfigParserWithIncludes.read(self, config_files)
File "/usr/share/fail2ban/client/configparserinc.py", line 105, in read
fileNamesFull += SafeConfigParserWithIncludes.getIncludes(filename)
File "/usr/share/fail2ban/client/configparserinc.py", line 76, in getIncludes
File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/ConfigParser.py", line 286, in read
self._read(fp, filename)
File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/ConfigParser.py", line 510, in _read
raise e
ConfigParser.ParsingError: File contains parsing errors: /etc/fail2ban/fail2ban.
[line 34]: 'logtarget - /var/log/fail2ban.log\n'

Can someone please help me to fix these issues?
