Before the named daemon starts, a valid configuration file must exist. This file is called /etc/named.conf by default. The configuration of named is simple. An empty file provides sufficient information to configure a caching-only server, assuming that DNS root servers are accessible.
# touch /etc/named.conf # named-checkconf -z /etc/named.conf
You use this file to configure remote control access of the DNS server. See How to Create an rndc.conf File.
# svcadm enable dns/server:default
