    You've neglected to search the forums first (this question has been asked and answered many times), you've not install a Split DNS set-up and you need one - that was your first mistake.

    That was your second mistake, you should set it to your domain name.

    Default Bind installation location

    I have downloaded bind from the following location.

    Download BIND 9.7.4 bind-9.7.4.tar.gz | Internet Systems Consortium

    i ran the following scripts.

    ./configure
    make
    make install

    but there is no /etc/named directory in my system. I am using RHEL 5.3 Server edition. I don't have the RHN key. so i can't use yum.

    kindly guide me.

    Why did you do that? You'll find that BIND is already provided in your distribution.

    You need to look in your server log files to find the reason it failed to start.

    Default Configuration of zimbra without using bind

    i don't have bind installed on RHEL 5. moreover i tried to install it but i can't understand the problem. it is installed fully but there are no associated directories or files created of bind. no named service. i spent a lot of time but could not solve that. kindly help me out. is there any alternative to get out of this problem? i have installed webmin1.560 on the same machine. but there is no bind server listed in the servers portion. can i do the same job using webmin without bind? is there any other alternative? please help me out.
