'Named' process failes to start with error: "rndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused"

Symptoms

Named service fails to start:

# /etc/init.d/named start
WARNING: key file (/etc/rndc.key) exists, but using default configuration file (/etc/rndc.conf)
rndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused
named is stopped

Cause

/etc/named.conf is modified or does not contain binding on 953 port.

Resolution

Make sure that /etc/named.conf contains binding on 953 port:

    controls {
inet 127.0.0.1 port 953
allow { 127.0.0.1; } keys { "rndc-key"; };
};
