Noted and thanks.


But I can't find;

# ls /usr/local/bind/usr/local/bind/etc/
ls: /usr/local/bind/usr/local/bind/etc/: No such file or directory


# ls /usr/local/bind/usr/local
ls: /usr/local/bind/usr/local: No such file or directory

# ls /usr/local/bind/usr/
ls: /usr/local/bind/usr/: No such file or directory

# ls /usr/local/bind
bin dev etc include lib man namedb sbin share var


The default directory is;

# ls /usr/local/bind/etc/
localtime
named.conf
named.root


I'm still searching around whether bind-9.5.0 needs rdnc.key. If YES
then how to create it. Any advice? TIA
