I haven't seen this on this list since I've been here a week or so,
I've been using testing redhats bind-config tool and it has caused me a
breakdown until today. When I use it to setup DNS files on a
fresh installed machine, the zone files look fine yet don't work.
I've found a few things by trial and error to share to see if others
have discovered the same.
After using the tool to create a couple of zones:
1st] /etc/named.conf The tool edits and saves a
variety of empty lines, white spaces at the trailing end of most of
the lines in the file, and if I open it with 'vi' in a gui terminal,
I see RED boxes scattered all over the place [even over letters in
So the first thing I do is clean up all the RED boxes, trailing 'white
and excessive blank lines.
2nd] When the tool creates a zonefile, [for example kbtest.com.zone] it
writes record as follows:
www IN A 123.234.345.456
This will fail. -But- if I change it to:
www.kbtest.com. IN A 123.234.345.456
along with the above fix to /etc/named.conf and restart named,
the zones resolve and all is good.
