What exactly do you mean by

I'm assuming you don't have any backups - probably a good time to revisit your backup strategy once we get this sorted out

DP you mean something like 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa?

You are going to need to explain in a bit more detail what's going on - there probably aren't a lot of people here who use IPConfig, but plenty who use Bind.

Sorry - been away.

Have a look in /var/log. Otherwise, try

find /var -name "*log*"

sorry, but are you sure these are from when you start bind? These seem to be a couple of hours earlier than the previous entry you posted


Anyway, as root, type "service named start" (no quotes)

Then post tail -10 /var/log/messages (or whatever the log was) If that doesn't look like enough info, try a 20 instead of the 10

Code:
root@thereddwarf:~# service named start
The program 'service' can be found in the following packages:
 * debian-helper-scripts
 * sysvconfig
Try: apt-get install <selected package>
-bash: service: command not found
