Bring Up the name daemon

Hi guys,

I am facing some problem with server in malaysia,
I have install Bind package, and have do setup into the name configurations, but i cannot bring the named daemon up.
I do the following command :

/etc/rc.d/init.d/named start
starting named : .........................................[OK]

Then i type the command ps -aux, but i didn't see anything stating named. So i restart again :

/etc/rc.d/init.d/named restart
stopping named ..........................................[ FAILED]
starting named ..........................................[OK]

Do you know why, when i restart the named daemon, it said stopping named [failed] although i had start the named before?

Something went wrong with named when you tried to start it (which is why you don't see anything with ps aux) and it can't shut down something that isn't running, which is why the stop failed.

Check /var/log/messages -- I think you'll get some hints as to what it's unhappy about. (If you have log files defined, check them, too.)

Hope this helps,
