    Did you create a DNS record with the IP address Please remove it. Nobody will be able to connect to your system if you use (=localhost) for your DNS records.

    Thanks, Yesterday I deleted the 2nd duplicate entry on a hunch, turns out
    that if I delete only the 1st dup bind crashes ?

    The only diff between the two entries was a LF under the one it didnt like...

    Anyway, since I deleted the 2nd entry bind has not gone down,
    and the ip was in the dns, but I have been using
    zoneedit to manage the dns untill I get bind and DNS figured out.

    same problem here

    If I delete it out of the named.conf it returns after changing something in ISPconfig.

    I have a localhost for every .nl domain (it's mandatory if I register domain at dutch SIDN)

    I think something went wrong with creating a domain.
    I could not make a mail A record for a domain so I made a mail2
    it started also to complain about that it already exists.

    thanks to sirion

    uncomment the lines
    and change something in dns with ispconfig....

    edited /root/ispconfig/isp/confnamed.conf.master and removed the 127.***
