Hi all,

Does anyone know how to automatically bring up the named process whenever I reboot our Redhat linux 6.2 server ?

You can run setup for this.

/usr/sbin/setup

go into 'system services' and mark named

Re: Named on Linux

As far as I can see, setup will create a sym link to /etc/rc.d/init.d/named. With the link in /etc/rc.d/rcX.d it will start at boot. To do it from command prompt;

This would have named start at runlevel 5.

ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/named /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S55named

Hope this helps

Re: Named on Linux

Just to make sure you add the link in the right place, do a:

grep initdefault /etc/inittab

This will tell you what user level your computer normally boots up to. By default this is 3.

If it was 3, you'd add the link to /etc/rc.d/rc3.d.
Ye who thinks he has a lot to say, probably shouldn't.
