bind status


Are there any commands which controll the name server?
I know some commands like "rndc status", but it is only tells me that the name server is running.

What sort of control do you need? Mostly you configure BIND by modifying its configuration files and restarting the service -- at least that's the way I do it.

I think I have made a wrong question.
My right question is:
How can I check the named?
For example : Does the named work correctly?

OK -- if you're using it as an authoratative name server (i.e. it is resoving names for a domain) you can simply check to see if it resolves names correctly, for instance do "dig host.yourdomain.com" from somewhere outside of your DNS server's network and see if the correct answer comes from the correct server. If you're using it as a caching nameserver (i.e. to look up names for you/your network) use "dig @server_ip_address somehost.somedomain.com" and see if it's able to give you an answer. If so, things are probably working.

Also, BIND dumps a fair amount of logging data, usually to /var/log/messages (depending how your syslod is configured). Read it and look for problems. If you're trying to troubleshoot something specific post it here and we can probably help more. Hope this helps.

gubak, please stop creating new threads for the same topic. I've already merged three of your threads about BIND/named. The most appropriate place to ask questions about BIND is in the Networking forum, and please keep questions about the same topic to your existing posts instead of starting new ones.

Thank you.
