named [FAILED] - zone 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa/IN: not loaded due to errors. - bind error solution

Centos when copying old files and restarting it seems load everything fine and then says [FAILED] with no log or other message.

service restart named

named   [FAILED]

Check more thoroughly you may have missed the error if you have lots of zones!

 service named restart|grep error
zone 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa/IN: not loaded due to errors.
zone 2.168.192.in-addr.arpa/IN: not loaded due to errors.
zone 3.168.192.in-addr.arpa/IN: not loaded due to errors.
 

Check the zone file you probably made a mistake that was accepted in an older version of bind/named:

$TTL 60  ; 172800 seconds
$ORIGIN 3.168.192.IN-ADDR.ARPA.
@             IN      SOA   ns1.rtt.com. ns2.rtt.com. (
                              2003080854 ; serial number
                              3h         ; refresh
                              15m        ; update retry
                              3w         ; expiry
                              3h         ; nx = nxdomain ttl
                              )
                IN NS ns1.rtt.com
                IN NS ns2.rtt.com

2       IN PTR testdns.com.
3       IN PTR dubmail-smart-www.testdns.com.
4       IN PTR path-mail-vlan20.testdns.com.

17 IN PTR testdns.com.
18 IN PTR tehka.testdns.com.
19 IN PTR khyra.testdns.com.
20 IN PTR skulda.testdns.com.
21 IN PTR thehip.testdns.com.
22 IN PTR ccipe.testdns.com.

Notice above how the IN NS does NOT have a period at the end of the TLD or .com

This is a mistake and not allowed and not tolerated in modern versions of bind but clearly in previous ones it was fine and working!

So just add the dots at the end like below and it will be good.

                IN NS ns1.rtt.com.
                IN NS ns2.rtt.com
.
 

The above is just a real life example and there was no mention specifically of this being the issue in the output or logs on the server.
