[BlueOnyx:23835] Strange DNS error

I have been having some strange DNS errors lately and it sent me down a
rabbit hole to find the problem. I removed whole zones and re-added them
manually among other drastic steps but it took forever to find the problem.
Which I have now sort of done.


To make a very long story short when I check the zone with:

named-checkzone ciic.com /var/named/chroot/var/named/db.ciic.com


I get this as the result.

dns_master_load: /var/named/chroot/var/named/db.ciic.com:37:
db.ciic.com.include: file not found

zone ciic.com/IN: loading from master file
/var/named/chroot/var/named/db.ciic.com failed: file not found

zone ciic.com/IN: not loaded due to errors.


This error says that db.ciic.com.include cannot be found. However the file
is clearly present. I checked it and it is empty. I never touched it. But if
I edit the main zone file /var/named/chroot/var/named/db.ciic.com and
comment out the include then the zone works.


named-checkzone ciic.com /var/named/chroot/var/named/db.ciic.com

zone ciic.com/IN: loaded serial 2020050908



Nothing I do in the GUI works however. Once I make a change in the GUI it
will remove the comment I made and the zone will fail again.


Anyone seen this or have any ideas? This is on an up-to-date 5209R

of it.
