Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a Fedora Core 4 box which I joined to my Win2003 ADS domain using winbind. I also managed to configure named as a secondary name server to accept zone updates from the Win2003 domain controller DNS service. The Fedora box also doubles as a Samba server to which the Win2003 file areas are backed up each night in the small hours.
Named is configured to log to two log files - one which logs issues (event.log) and the other which is a straight query log (query.log).
Everything has been running fine for about a month, but now when I look in /var/named/chroot/var/named, I see the query.log is going haywire, and is fillling up with about 200 requests every second from 127.0.0.1 all similar to the following:
I've tried the simple stuff, such as restarting named, rebooting the box, but to no avail. There is nothing in event.log to point to a problem, but I can't help thinking that this means something has gone wrong somewhere!
Can anyone tell me a) what is causing this, and b) how I stop it without rebuilding the box from scratch please (which is the only way I managed to cure it last time).
Have you made sure that on the linux box, the /etc/hosts file has a hard coded entry (IP Hostname) for the windows server, and conversely on the Windows server, make sure it's HOSTS file has a hard entry for the linux box? This would prevent either one from having to do a DNS lookup to get the IP address for the other.
