    Lately with new Centos 64bit 5.x installs, when ever I restart the server, the DNS won't start up anymore.

    chkconfig --list will show it turned off.. should i simply chkconfig named on?

    What has changed in recent updates that is causing this to not function any longer, and how can I fix it in case there is some background process that should be enabled rather than the above approach?

    Yes, I have selected named to be monitored in the service manager in whm, but it seems to not be doing anything.

    Just using bind btw.

    Seems to be a bug with all new CentOS 5 (32bit and 64bit) installs on which cPanel installs bind/named where the named service is not configured to start automatically at any runlevel.

    It can be easily fixed by running:

    chkconfig --level 345 named on && /etc/init.d/named start
