How to disable strict zone checking in bind in cPanel

Recent versions of Bind distributed by RedHat and CentOS enable strict zone checking at startup time. This setting can potentially cause problems for Bind users with a large number of zone files or syntax errors in individual zone files.

As a result, users may experience an inability to restart Bind after a shutdown. cPanel has, immediately, produced and distributed an autofixer for this condition. This repair will run automatically on all systems with updates enabled. However, cPanel checks only occur at specific times and depending upon update schedules, users experiencing issues restarting Bind may benefit from manually executing the code to disable strict zone checking. If you are facing this problem,
you may safely execute the autofixer by running the following command:

# /scripts/autorepairbind_disable_checkzone
