You mean it does not work right after reboot?
I've had similar problems in past because of several reasons, for
example if network setup was not really completed before starting
named. I thought I got everything solved but yesterday I noticed again
a broken named on one of my 11.4 boxes. Maybe the latest bind update
two weeks ago did something bad?

Anyway to avoid problems with incomplete network setup etc. you could do
in /etc/sysconfig/boot (requires sysvinit). Then see whether the problem
still persists.


Hi Rudi
This is 12.1 systemd with:
rpm -q bind
and ls -l /usr/sbin/named
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 560484 Jun 5 12:17 /usr/sbin/named
June 5th.

I've tried putting
rcnamed restart
but it seems that the network is still not up when boot.local is run.
ifup eth1
rcnamed restart
is a little more reliable, but I need something where someone can just press the switch and reboot without me having to be called out.

I can't risk changing to sysvinit until we get some downtime, August maybe.

Is this too minor an issue for a buzilla?
