    Code:
    chmod 755 /var/named/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/named/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/run/
    chmod 777 /var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
    cd /var/named/chroot/var/named/
    ln -s ../../ chroot
    cp /usr/share/doc/bind-9.3.6/sample/var/named/named.local /var/named/chroot/var/named/named.local
    cp /usr/share/doc/bind-9.3.6/sample/var/named/named.root /var/named/chroot/var/named/named.root
    touch /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local
    vi /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf
    Code:
    //
    // named.conf
    //

    };
    include "/var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local";
    Code:
    chkconfig --levels 235 named on
    /etc/init.d/named start
    and i getting this error:

    /etc/init.d/named start

    Starting named: [FAILED]


    Here something you might need to know:

    [root@xpro-world named]# updatedb
    [root@xpro-world named]# locate named.conf
    /etc/named.conf
    /etc/named.conf.local
    /etc/dbus-1/system.d/named.conf
    /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/bind_named.conf.local.master
    /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/bind_named.conf.local.slave
    /usr/share/doc/bind-9.3.6/sample/etc/named.conf
    /usr/share/man/man5/named.conf.5.gz
    /usr/share/system-config-bind/profiles/default/named.conf
    /var/named/chroot/etc/.named.conf.swp
    /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf
    /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local

    and this

    [root@xpro-world ~]# updatedb
    [root@xpro-world ~]# locate named.root.hints
    /usr/share/doc/bind-9.3.6/sample/etc/named.root.hints



    i'm not sure if any of that is important but i really need help

    What's in /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local? Is SELinux disabled?
    What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    ?

    Can you post both your /etc/named.conf and your /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf?

    What's the output of
    Code:
    updatedb
    locate named.root
    ?

    Hi Falko, thanks for responding...

    I'm following http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-fedora-10

    Here's the error :

    And here's my log messages, I don't think it's related...

    Do you use ISPConfig 2? If so, what do you have in the fields named.conf and Zonefiles Dir. on the DNS tab under Management > Server > Settings?
     
  11. budim2010

    budim2010 New Member

    Nope, I'm following The perfect server Fedora 10 tutorial page 3.
    There's no such tab in my Fedora 10 server.

    I've run these commands in tutorial :

    But it ends up failed....
    I already disable Selinux and Firewall.
    any suggestions ??

    The tutorial prepares the server for the installation of ISPConfig 2. If you let ISPConfig 2 manage your DNS zones, BIND will start.

    Ok, thanks for ur suggestion. But there's no ISpconfig 2 for Fedora 10, only ISpconfig 3.........
