That was the error message which I got from the plesk: Error: Unable to make action: Unable to manage service by dnsmng: dnsmng: Service /etc/init.d/named failed to start ('--start', 'dns') ...and I don't find any error in the /var/log/messages file This is the solution: # /usr/sbin/named -u named -g -d 1 --> you will get this error: /usr/sbin/named: symbol lookup error: /usr/sbin/named: undefined symbol: dns_cache_create3 (Now the google already could help to you or read below ) # zypper update bind --> Nothing to do. # zypper update bind-libs --> Installing: bind-libs-9.7.4P1-0.2.1 [done] --> (THIS IS THE REAL SOLUTION! That was missing.) # service named start I hope I could help to others (with my poor english study ) ps.: somewhere I read this file modification: Add these rows into the /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.named file and after reboot /var/named/run-root/etc/* rw, /var/named/run-root/var/* rw, /var/named/run-root/dev/* rw, BUT this didn't help to me.
