    I left the proftp entry there, so you can see, there is no error between bind starting and bind .. re-starting .. any ideas ? :)

    bind 9.1 has its share of crash problems. We are considering making packages for the latest version of bind, however we don\'t want to cause any new problems (I\'m sure there will be if we do).. If someone wants to test new bind packages, let me know.

    we\'ve had the same problems on our more loaded servers. Basically bind8 seems to dislike more than about 300 or so zones, then it starts crashing.

    Firstly I would go through your zones and make sure there aren\'t any invalid ones or double ups in /var/named
    Then add a cron that restarts bind every 30 mins, that seems to stabilise it.

    regards,

    Simon

    Can you give us an idea of what the command line should be for bind to restart as a cron? Thanks.

    restart bind to get zone to load more than likely is caused by a ndc connect fail ... there is a thread in here somewhere about a key you put into named.cond to fix that.

    I have been told that bind will fail often if you have more than one zone entry to the same zone in named.conf. Well not exactally. What I have found is if you have 2 entries for the same zone and the exact entries are slightly different in spacing or position in the file, bind doesn\'t like that. I have found a reseller that deleted a domain and added it back did this to me. Seems deleting a domain doesn\'t remove the named.conf entry.
