BIND

I have Bind  9.2.1-16 on Red Hat 9 SO and Bind does not work any longer, if I try to stop it says Bind has stopped, but if I try to start it again ti sayd already running, but it does note resolve the domain names what could be the cause?

Well, stop it the terminal way then.

ps aux | grep -i bind #to get the PID (Process ID)
kill InsertBindsPIDhere # to kill bind

When it's dead, you should be able to restart it normally.

The actual binary from the bind suite is called named, so the command you are looking for to definitely kill the nameservers is:

killall -9 named

Are those the only errors reported during the startup of named? If they are it may indicate that something about your system is damaged, This could be as a result of some file system error, an ill advised upgrade of some system library, or a hardware problem. Has anything recently happened or been changed?

rcinformaticaAuthor Commented:
the only thing that changed today is the sendmail not working saying name server timeout, so I tried to reinstall sendmail and bind with no luck,

Have there been any other changes recently, like upgrade of some system library? Has the server experienced a powerfail or crash recently?

You might try an 'rpm -q --verify --all' and check for system components that show MD5 sum errors.
