SUSE 10.2 as per the instructions. When we create a "New Master" via the DNS Manager page there are no changes made to the name server's config files and no zone files created. bind is running chrooted in /var/lib/named and ispconfig is configured to put zone files in /var/lib/named/zone . ispconfig does successfully create a root.hints and 127.0.0.zone in that directory but thats it. No other zone files. The settings are being stored in ISPConfig web interface, just not written to the named config. Where can I start to debug this?
