Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am having DNS issues and simply can't solve it. I get 1-2 "DNS error" or "Network unreachable" errors in Google webmaster tools.

I checked my DNS via intodns.com, but everything is fine.

When I restart BIND I get this:

1. max open files (1024) is smaller than max sockets (4096): 2 Time(s)
2. Network unreachable resolving ...few errors
3. The working directory is not writable (WHM server, normal?)
4. using default UDP/IPv4 port range: [1024, 65535]: 2 Time(s)
using default UDP/IPv6 port range: [1024, 65535]: 2 Time(s)
client view external: zone transfer 'domain/AXFR/IN' denied: 2 Time(s)

What are some possibilities for receiving "DNS error" or "Network unreachable" errors in Google webmaster tools?

Can you expand on the errors that you're seeing from Google's tools? As well as what the Network unreachable errors contain? –  Shane Madden Aug 9 '11 at 2:28
