    bind server doesn't do its job


    Hi There...
    I just installed bind on RHEL 6 and point a domain to that server. but actually when i ping domain from network-tools web site, it returns error 1214:Unknown error
    Here is my named.conf:

    Code:
    //
    // named.conf
    //
    // Provided by Red Hat bind package to configure the ISC BIND named(8) DNS
    // server as a caching only nameserver (as a localhost DNS resolver only).
    //
    // See /usr/share/doc/bind*/sample/ for example named configuration files.
    //
    
    options {
        listen-on port 53 { any; };
        listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };
        directory       "/var/named";
        dump-file       "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
        statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
        memstatistics-file "/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";
        allow-query     { any; };
        recursion yes;
    
        dnssec-enable yes;
        dnssec-validation yes;
        dnssec-lookaside auto;
    
        /* Path to ISC DLV key */
        bindkeys-file "/etc/named.iscdlv.key";
    
        managed-keys-directory "/var/named/dynamic";
    };
    
    logging {
        channel default_debug {
                file "data/named.run";
                severity dynamic;
        };
    };
    
    zone "." IN {
        type hint;
        file "named.ca";
    };
    
    include "/etc/named.rfc1912.zones";
    include "/etc/named.root.key";
    zone "mydomain.com"{
        type master;
        file "/var/named/data/named.mydomain.com";
        allow-update { none; };
     };`

    AND The content of "/var/named/data/named.mydomain.com":

    Code:
    $TTL 38400
    
    mydomain.com. IN SOA ns1.mydomain.com. milad.yahoo.com. (
    2012101201 ; serial number YYMMDDNN
    28800 ; Refresh
    7200 ; Retry
    864000 ; Expire
    38400 ; Min TTL
    )
    
    mydomain.com. IN A 1.2.3.4
    www IN A 1.2.3.4
    ns1.mydomain.com. IN A 1.2.3.4
    ns2.mydomain.com. IN A 1.2.3.4
    mydomain.com. IN NS ns1.mydomain.com.
    mydomain.com. IN NS ns2.mydomain.com.

    AND i'm sure the named service is running:


    Code:
    [root@server ~]# service named status
    version: 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6_3.3
    CPUs found: 8
    worker threads: 8
    number of zones: 20
    debug level: 0
    xfers running: 0
    xfers deferred: 0
    soa queries in progress: 0
    query logging is OFF
    recursive clients: 0/0/1000
    tcp clients: 0/100
    server is up and running
    named (pid 26299) is running...
    Also here is the output of dig utility:

    Code:
    ; <<>> DiG 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6_3.3 <<>> mydomain.com

    You cannot post links here until your post count reaches a minimum level - but that posting on Pastie is all in text. I'm sure you could cut-and-past that into a post here for reference, that way we can all see what is being talked about.
