Re: named start on boot up

Hi,

thanks for the hint.

However, I have another main that although the named process is running and listening on port UDP 53. I am not able to query the DNS server. When I run nslookup command on the machine itself, it times out.

any idea ??

Appreciate your support.

Jean,

Just starting named will not do anything since you stilll need to configure the named (/etc/named.conf) to define the zones, etc that your DNS server is responsible for. You also need to define where to look for other zones.

Re: named start on boot up

both nsswitch.conf and nsswitch.dns don't exist ... do you think this could be the problem?
