Why doesn't the DNS update after a new parked or addon domain is added? The only way that I have been able to apply the updates is to restart the DNS server manually. Shouldn't it apply updates immediately? Is there a way to do that?

Wow, Thanks for the Great Support! :confused: Could anyone help me out with this? Should I run a cron job?

I'm not an expert, but I believe it's supposed to sighup named automatically.

If not, try /etc/init.d/named restart and see if it starts working.

You could always setup a script to run this every 5 minutes as a workaround until you can find a permanent solution.

Just my 2c.

What I do: inserted a crontab which every 4 hours executes "/scripts/dnstransfer"

Work's like a charm (although I realize it's a workaround)
