    Either my memory is failing or I've not come across this one before. Had a load issue last night and cPanel service monitor emailed to state named had recovered. However around the same time /etc/init.d/named appears to have been modified.

    Having checked this against the original package, the change made seems to be as follows

    Could some kind soul please confirm that removing the -z option is a cPanel change, when it is made and what it achieves?

    Many thanks

    Hello :)

    Yes, the "z" flag enables strict zone checking in /etc/init.d/named. This flag was intentionally removed a few years ago because it can result in Bind failing to start due to a bad zone modification, or result in long startup times due to the number of zones on the system.

    Thank you.
