    Configserver guys replaced BIND in my server MyDNS (I don´t know why)
    So I was wondering why they may have prefered it to BIND (the default).

    BTW when I tried to change it back to BIND all my domains stopped resolving

    Bind is the default choice. But it is resource intensive.

    But I am not sure about the exact reason for the change ;)

    I have noticed that named service stops frequently

    rndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused
    named is stopped
    root@s4 [~]# /etc/init.d/named restart
    Stopping named: [ OK ]
    Starting named:

    Hello :)

    Do you notice any entries in /var/log/messages when this happens?

    Thank you.
