Thanks for the info, I already googled it and found almost nothing. Btw I
changed a few things in my server including generating new rndc key and
suddenly the same way the error appeared it gone.
Right now it is working fine but I'm still concerned it will happens again.

a google of that error: "rndc: Couldn't find server 'localhost'" returned
the following results.


The following post on an HP forum might be a good place to start.


however, without any more information that just the error message there
isn't much else we can offer you.


If you've found a wise man then you've found a man that was at one time an
idiot and lived long enough to learn from his mistakes.
