I copied the .gz file to /home/mydir and unzipped and untarred it.  Then ran ./configure make.  But after killing the named process and restarting - in fact after restarting the entire system - I am still showing I am running bind 8.2.4.  Please point me to a resource for upgrading from the BIND 8.2.4 that comes standard with the Free BSD installation and getting it to 9.2.1.

Do you install BIND v9 in a different dir?

Have a look at the makefile for BIND 9, to see where it is
install.

type in:
        #which named
        #which ndc
        to make sure your PATH is pointing to the new version.

        "named -v " should tell you which verion you are using
        or : ndc status
             nslookup
        can tell you the story.

        su as root,
        find / -name named -print
        to find out how many copy of named on your system.

        and try to start the new version

The default from configure isn't going to install 9.2.1 in the same locations as FreeBSD installed 8.2.4. I belive that if you build Bind 9 from the ports collection it'll install over the Bind 8 installation.

As I recall configure will target Bind 9 for /usr/local. You can run it from there manually or modify /etc/rc.conf to run your copy.

Thanks again.  The which named is a great help.  Find showed that named 8 was in /usr/sbin while named 9.1.3 was installed by default in /usr/sbin.  I did two other things...one was in rc.conf I added...

named_program="/usr/local/sbin/named"    

and in /usr/sbin I renamed named to named8.  Any thought on a good way to clean out BIND 8?
