How can I disable BIND(named) and also turn off Service Check for it?


Jan 7, 2002
I have 3 servers and I run my primary and secondary servers on the first and second. I just got my third server and I don't need bind running on it however by my provider installed it anyway. Now I need to disable it.

I have already disabled it from the WHM Service Manager but that does'nt seem to help. Every 5 mins or so chkservd checks bind and becuase its not running it automatically restarts it. It also sends me an e-mail and icq/aim messages which are starting to annoy me.

Does anyone know how to get chkservd to NOT check if bind is running or not thus disabling it for good. Also I want to end those annoying BIND FAILED & RESTARTED messages from chservd.
