Thanks Dave and Gary for the input. Once I understood where the system
messages were going I was able to figure out that I had an issue with
the permissions on the named.conf file I was using. I changed two
1. chown root:sys /etc/named.conf (It was root:root)
2. chmod 755 /etc/named.conf
Now it starts properly. Can anyone confirm for me that the permissions
are correct though? I just want to make sure it's secure and I think
755 might not be restrictive enough??
