I noticed in my logwatch file I have an error with my rndc key.  I could
'play' around with it and may fix it but most likey just hose things up.  I
think I see the problem but not 100% sure.  I think the key file has 3
different names.

Here's the error:

**Unmatched Entries**
   /etc/named.conf:23: couldn't find key 'rndckey' for use with command
channel 1 Time(s)

Here's parts of the relevant files:


controls {
	inet allow { localhost; } keys { rndckey; };

include "/etc/rndc.key"; <-- does not match above


options {
        default-server  localhost;
        default-key     "rndckey";

server localhost {
        key     "rndckey";

key "rndckey" {
        algorithm       hmac-md5;
        secret "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";


key "rndc-key" {    <----- yet another name for the key
	algorithm hmac-md5;
	secret "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";

Anyone know what the simpliest solution would be?
