Hi Matus,


Sorry "named.root" can't work. Just tried it, named.roof file not
found.

Can't find the line "/usr/local/bind/etc/rndc.key" on
named.root/name.conf


# updatedb
# locate rndc.key
No printout


I think rndc.key not generated yet? I have to generate it with
"rndc-confgen" command?


# which rndc-confgen
No printout


# locate rndc-confgen

/usr/local/src/bind-9.5.0/bin/rndc/rndc-confgen

Which "rndc-confgen" shall I use?


# man rndc-confgen
man: can't set the locale; make sure $LC_* and $LANG are correct
No manual entry for rndc-confgen


Whether following command line and path are correct to generate
rndc.key;

#rndc-confgen -a -c /usr/local/bind/etc/rndc.key
???


TIA
