my named.conf file looks like this

//

// named.conf

//

// Provided by Red Hat bind package to configure the ISC BIND named(8) DNS

// server as a caching only nameserver (as a localhost DNS resolver only).

//

// See /usr/share/doc/bind*/sample/ for example named configuration files.

options {

#listen-on port 53 { 127.0.0.1; };

#listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };

directory "/var/named";

dump-file "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";

statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";

memstatistics-file "/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";

allow-query { localhost;192.168.1.100/24; };

recursion yes;

 

dnssec-enable yes;

dnssec-validation yes;

dnssec-lookaside auto;

allow-transfer { localhost; 192.168.1.0/24; };

/* Path to ISC DLV key */

bindkeys-file "/etc/named.iscdlv.key";

};

 

logging {

channel default_debug {

file "data/named.run";

severity dynamic;

};

};

view "internal" {

match-clients {

localhost;

192.168.1.0/24;

};

zone "." IN {

type hint;

file "named.ca";

};

zone "aromotorgroup.com" IN {

type master;

file "aromotorgroup.com.lan";

allow-update { none; };

};

zone "1.168.192.in-addr.arpa" IN {

type master;

file "1.168.192.db";

allow-update { none; };

};

include "/etc/named.rfc1912.zones";

};

view "external" {

match-clients {

any;

};

zone "." IN {

type hint;

file "named.ca";

};

zone "aromotorgroup.com" IN {

type master;

file "aromotorgroup.com";

allow-update { none; };

};

zone "226.99.221.41.in-addr.arpa" IN {

 

 

type master;

file "226.99.221.41.db";

allow-update { none; };

};

};

and my zone file looks like this

 

$TTL 86400

@ IN SOA localhost.aromotorgroup.com. root.aromotorgroup.com. (

2004042801 ; Serial

2H ; Refresh

2H ; Retry

1H ; Expire

1D) ; Min TTL

 

NS localhost.aromotorgroup.com.

NS ns.domain.com.

 

aromotorgroup.com. MX 5 mail.jyrules.com.

aromotorgroup.com. MX 15 pvr.jyrules.com.

 

aromotorgroup.com. A 41.221.99.226

 

localhost A 127.0.0.1

 

www CNAME aromotorgroup.com.

ftp CNAME aromotorgroup.com.

mail CNAME aromotorgroup.com.

 

pvr IN A 226.99.221.41

 

i hope i will be helped

It looks like an issue with not finding your zone files, by the looks of that error message:

zone aromotorgroup.com/IN: loading from master file aromotorgroup.com failed: file not found
zone aromotorgroup.com/IN: not loaded due to errors.
external/aromotorgroup.com/IN: file not found

 

Check locations and permissions carefully - ISTR that later versions of BIND run in a chroot jail.

On a relatively recent RedHat/CentOS/Fedora system (as the 'Red Hat' comment in named.conf) seems to suggest, the zone files need to be kept inside the named jail, as Dave suggested.

 

On my CentOS 5.6 system, my zone files are located in /var/named/chroot/var/named.

By the way.. hybrid: you any knowledge of configuring dynamic DNS, in particular through webmin?

 

I can't seem to get DHCP and DNS talking to each other... not found any good articles on setting it up.

 

(I get the impression that the DHCP side of things creates a DNS zone for you and populates it - but can't find any real detailed info)

I'm afraid not -- I've worked with Dynamic DNS, but only really in the Windows world with Active Directory and MS DNS Server, where it does it all for you anyway! I'm sure you've already Googled extensively, but I wonder if this Debian Admin post is useful? Have you also looked into using something like Dnsmasq instead of wrestling with the behemoths that is BIND? Again, not something I've looked into, though.
