Close, but wrong ;-)

What webpage are you following ?
Whichever it is, STOP and read this:


and this:


Yes, a 'named.conf' is created, but it is NOT the main named.conf, it
is one that needs to be included in your main named.conf.

Towards the end of the provision command output, you should find a line
similar to this:

See /var/lib/samba/private/named.conf for an example configuration
include file for BIND

This will show you where the file is and you will need to add a line to
your named conf files:

include "/var/lib/samba/private/named.conf";
