I had the same issue, and the information in the link posted by Starcalc above worked for me (though the post he linked is for Ubuntu). This is what I did for my CentOS 6.4 box:

In /etc/named.conf, ensure you have the line present in the options{} section

managed-keys-directory "/var/named/dynamic";

Also, make sure you have the directories /var/named/dynamic and /var/named/chroot/var/named/dynamic presesent, ensure all are owned by named:named (easy way: chown -R named:named /var/named ) and if you run with SELinux, do: restorecon -R /var/named/

Moreover change directory rights as

chmod 770 /var/named/chroot/var/named/dynamic


chmod 770 /var/named/dynamic
