    how to create a zone for named

    Hello, I am trying to learn how to set up dns zones with named.

    I created a zone (as attached) but I am sure I not written it correctly, because named will not start when it tries to load the zone.
    I have also attached the error message I received.

    Can anyone please tell me how to write this zone file correctly.
    I am simply trying to create a zone that links '' to

    Thanks kindly for any help.

    The second to last line (the NS line) should be:

        IN NS  <machinename/ip>
    It's probably confusing BIND.

    There's a bit of clarification (and some examples) here in the CentOS docs.
