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.

Thanks

cPanel Access Level

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
