DKIM/DomainKey Record Not properly formatted for Plesk (Named)
Problem reported by Matthew Sine - June 6, 2017 at 7:52 AM
Hi Team,
We are in the process of adding Plesk Onyx to our offerings. We have a customer who has migrated to Smartermail 16. When we add the DKIM/DomainKey record to the Plesk interface all goes well... however the zone will not properly transfer to other DNS servers in the cluster.
When we run

named-checkzone localhost /var/named/run-root/var/


on the command line of the server, we receive:

/var/named/run-root/var/ ignoring out-of-zone data (

dns_rdata_fromtext: /var/named/run-root/var/ syntax error


zone localhost/IN: loading from master file /var/named/run-root/var/ failed: syntax error


This is an issue, and we have tried this same test on several plesk boxes - even manually editing the zone file and running named-checkzone...


However, when we add the same type of record to Interworx Control Panel (DJBDNS) the record creates properly, and edge servers are properly updated.

If you have any suggestions, they are welcome...
