    How can I restart the DNS server on a Raq 550 without rebooting the server itself?

    Try (as root) from a shell
    rndc status (see if named is running, if not)
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/named start

    Hi Manny,

    Both your suggestions resulted in a command not found.

    Any other solutions?

    On my 550, /etc/rc.d/init.d/named is there. Perhaps trying doing a "ls named" to find where this file is located on your 550.

    Odd that this file would be in different locations on a 550 ....

    Named is in the dir you mentioned.

    rndc status returns a rndc: command not found

    also named start returns a named: commmand not found

    Hmmm...

    Are you "su" in shell?

    Or you can try "su -" in shell, and then try:
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/named start

    Note the space between su and -

    Let me know if this works or not...

    Yep that worked although the rndc still doesn't.

    So is named start the same as restarting it?

    I believe so. You can always "stop" then "start" just to make sure, but all the threads I've come across re: this state "start."

    Odd about the rndc ....
