Do you have it installed? I assume you do since you are asking how to start :-)

Anyway...this is how you check if you have it installed (if you installed it by a pkg)
Code:
root@host# pkginfo | grep bind
As root cd into /etc/init.d/ and create a file called named that has something like this (your paths will probably be different):
Code:
#!/sbin/sh
#

case "$1" in
'start')
        if [ -f /etc/named.conf -a -x /usr/sbin/named ] ;then
          echo "Starting DNS name daemon ..."
          /usr/sbin/named &
        else
          echo "Did not start DNS name daemon ..."
        fi
        ;;

'stop')
        echo "Stopping DNS name daemon"
        kill -HUP `cat /var/named/named.pid`
        ;;

*)
        echo "Usage: $0 { start | stop }"
        exit 1
        ;;
esac
exit 0
Then make it executable...
Code:
root@host# chmod +x named
Now make your symbolic links so that you can start at boot...
Code:
root@host# ln -s /etc/init.d/named /etc/rc3.d/S95named
root@host# ln -s /etc/init.d/named /etc/rc0.d/K03named

If your are using Solaris bundled named, the way to enable it is:
Code:
svcadm enable dns/server
"man named" for configuration details.

Just Run these commands and it should create it for you...

Code:
root@host# ln -s /etc/init.d/named /etc/rc3.d/S95named
root@host# ln -s /etc/init.d/named /etc/rc0.d/K03named
Also jlliagre is right....if you have it bundeled in then use svcs to enable it...thus eliminating the need for the startup script.

Code:
root@got# svcs -a | grep dns
online         May_24   svc:/network/dns/server:default
online         May_24   svc:/network/dns/client:default
To enable dns server at boot run this command...
Code:
root@host# svcadm enable svc:/network/dns/server:default
This is the preferred (and more elegant) way.

Sorry jlliagre I still have the "old school" way of looking at things

This syntax is correct however the service name need not to be fully described.
Save some keystrokes by using:
Code:
# svcadm enable dns/server
