Hi ,

I am using Webmin to manage my DNS server (Bind9).  Since I have 1000 zones in my dns I want to save the zones configuration in different file then the original named.conf file.

I edit the “Add new zones to fileoption and added different file for the zone configuration , but nothing happened – mean all the zones stored in the named.conf file instead in the new file.

I looked at the log and saw the new file configuration as can be seen below ,

How can I resolve this?

 

Thanks in advance ,
