bind down....not working

I have no idea why but Bind failed.

Steps:
1. Named is on in service manager
2. updated cpanel to R119 (9.9.8)
3. /scripts/./fixndc (tells me already fixed)
4. Restarted BIND
5. /scripts/updatenow
6. /scripts/fixnamed
7. rndc reload

Please help

OS: Fedora Core 1
cPanel / WHM 9.9.8 R119

Hi,

   Any error message from /var/log/messages?
   Any recently change on the named.conf or DNS record files?

It seems that you have 4 virtual IPs on the eth0 (eth0:1, eth0:2, eth0:3, eth0:4) and those virtual IP doesn't
accept UDP.

However, the following messages show named is up and listening on all the IPs.

Could you provide:
# ifconfig -a
And the way you test DNS?

I didn't test it, restarting BIND gives no error but the error is in server status inside web host manager (cpanel's admin side)

ifconfig -a shows this:

Could you provide the errot messages of cpanel?

Besides, can you just do
$ nslookup www.yahoo.com
to test DNS?

So your DNS (BIND) has no problem, since you can querry www.yahoo.com.
The problem is something else.
Check the setting of the application which has problem with DNS.

sounds like it could be a firewall issue as the udp port 53 isn't binding to any of the virtual ip addresses, also listen to a certain IP address:

listen-on { xx.xx.xx.xx; };

cyb3rj0hnCommented:
Usually errors like this are generated when the shutdown of named did not complete successfully, meaning you still had an instance of named running.  DNS is heavily dependent on UDP so if you seen errors like this it cannot bind UDP on port 53 for that IP instance because there is already a named daemon bound to it that is still running. One other thing to mention if you have a lot of DNS entries, named will take some time to shut down, even though it has already showed you an "OK". Use ps ax|grep named to make sure it has completly shut down.  Hope this helps.

Cheers,
John
