    Every few weeks my "named" falls over and doesn't restart. Same happened last evening. I really would appreciate some help trying to find out why this happens, as I don't really know what to do and my host just tells me to get backup dns.

    I'm getting the error message below.

    nameserver failed @ ***. A restart was attempted automagically.
    Service Check Method: [check command]
    Number of Restart Attempts: 1
    Cmd Service Check Raw Output: named is not running
    Startup Log: Starting named:

    I've looked in var/messages and the last few lines before it fails are shown below

    Can anyone advise what the problem may be?
