I'm sure that nothing has changed from 4.5 to 5 so my thoughts are you are not 
placing the files in the correct directories.  Try the following, place the 
files listed below in the directories they are listed under.

named.conf  rndc.conf  rndc.key <any other config file for Bind>

<place your zone files here>

Make sure all your conf files reflect these location and you can create links 
in /etc for the config files.

SELinux only allows Bind to write in certain directories, this being one of 
them, data being another.  As I like to keep logs and zonefiles separate, 
makes thing easier when searching for something, I write log files to Data 
directory.  Also this is standard across all m y DNS servers keeping the 
guessing game of where something is to "Nill".

Try this and if it still is not working then a lot more information is needed 
from your end to help identify where and what the problem is.



Smile... it increases your face value!
