BIND Errors

Hello All,

I use BIND on my machine and have been using it for a while now without any problems. It is a very good software and I would like to commend you on this good product.

Recently, I was doing a cleanup and audit of my system and found several error entries in my event viewer logs. The error logged for each instance is as follows:

Event Type:	Error
Event Source:	named
Event Category:	None
Event ID:	1
Date:		04/08/2007
Time:		20:09:37
User:		N/A
Computer:	SERVER1
The description for Event ID ( 1 ) in Source ( named ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use
the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: client update '' denied.

Am unsure as to the cause of this error but as you can see from the error, it does say the event source is "named" which is the BIND user account. I have researched the internet to see if I can find a solution but have not been successful at that hence am contacting you to see if you can give me some input or support with this issue.

By the way, the domain name shown in the error is one of the domains I have set-up on my server so it is not alien or unknown to me. I am hoping for some god feedback from you as these errors keep re-occurring and I have to keep clearing up the logs entries. In each event, the error reported is the same.

Kind regards,
