named problems after Cpanel 9.x upgrade
After upgrading to Cpanel (WHM 9.1.0 cPanel 9.1.0-R74
FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE - WHM X v2.1.2 ) from some other 8.x version I started having some DNS issues.
Namely, random DNS zones will randomly drop off and stop functioning, requiring me to remove and readd the zones, then restart the ndc.
Any ideas what is causing this? As you might imagine, it gets quite old having to readd sites to get the DNS functioning properly, and i'm sure theres an explanation and a fix, just not one that i'm aware of right now.
Here is the output of ndc status:
named 8.3.4-REL Thu Jun 5 00:48:07 GMT 2003 [email protected]:/usr/obj/usr/src/usr.sbin/named
config (/etc/named.conf) last loaded at age: Fri Mar 19 15:40:58 2004
number of zones allocated: 64

query logging is OFF
server is up and running
Perhaps I should try migrating to bind 9?

I had some similar problems related to bind after I upgraded to 8. The named proccess seems to be pushing the server load up and up and I have to restart it daily. Haven't been able to find the problem yet. I wish named had a log.ServerMatingProject.com

How did you manage to fix the problem? I don't think its having any effect on the load, just zones dropping off the database at random even though they still exist in /etc/named.conf and in /etc/namedb/
11:39PM up 1 day, 18:08, 1 user, load averages: 0.18, 0.15, 0.10
At least that looks fine and well.

Oh nevermind, you didn't actually fix it yet. My mistake.
