    Last night I received some error emails from my server saying that bind had failed and it was trying to restart the service. I checked this out and tried to restart but this I get this message each time I try to restart the service.

    "named has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "named is not running"). "

    I need some help fixing this problem, please.

    Does your /etc/named.conf file exist?

    Try this command

    /usr/sbin/named -u named -c /etc/named.conf

    Then please verify whether the bind is running
    ps ax | grep named

    named.conf didn't exist. I restored it from named.conf.backup and verified all DNS entries were correct. It's working again, thanks.

    might not be a bad idea to run /scripts/rebuildnamedconf if /etc/named.conf doesn't already exist.
    Or if it does, backup /etc/named.conf first, and run the script to rebuild the config to see if that works...
