    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.
