DNS zones for recently created in OBAS domains are absent on an SSH-managed name server.


Incorrect name server configuration. The following output is displayed on attempt to execute named-checkconf utility on affected name server:

root@dns01:~# named-checkconf
/var/named/zones.added:6: zone 'domain.tld': already exists previous definition: /var/named/zones.received:94

In example above DNS zone for domain <domain.tld> is defined twice: one in file /var/named/zones.added and one in file /var/named/zones.received.

Note: file names can be different in your case.


Please check your name server configuration files to identify the reason of duplicates.

Please consider to delete duplicates and restart named service:

#service named restart

Note: troubleshooting of named-related issues is out of Odin Support scope.
