BIND DNS Server not running

virtualmin is reporting BIND DNS Server is not running and i am able to get to all sites i have configured.

bind is running as indicated by ps auxw | grep named

bind 9238 0.0 0.3 52892 11104 ? Ssl 18:29 0:00 /usr/sbin/named -u bind
root 9545 0.0 0.2 51220 9640 ? Ssl 18:33 0:00 /usr/sbin/named -c /etc/bind/named.conf

a check of my config says

BIND DNS server is installed, and the system is configured to use it.

i have tried to restart bind with no luck.

i am running

virtualmin 3.76 gpl
Debian lenny

could someone tell me what i can check to resolve this problem

update i did notice the

BIND DNS Server link points to

i am running bind9

Is that a new problem, or have you had that issue ever since installing Virtualmin?

Is BIND taking awhile to respond? If you run this command from your server, what output do you get:

time host has address has address has address has address mail is handled by 10 mail is handled by 10 mail is handled by 10 mail is handled by 10

real 0m1.513s
user 0m0.004s
sys 0m0.004s

this happened after upgrading virtualmin to ver 2.76 from 2.72

Yeah, I’m not really sure – your DNS seems to be working, and responding quickly.

I might suggest filing a bug report, and say that after your recent upgrade, you’re getting the above messages.
