Mandriva 2007 Bind problem

Hi All,

I'm running Mandriva 2007 on about 5 servers and have not got Bind running on any of them. I run Bind on Mandriva 2006 without any problems but 2007 fails every time.

The procedure is:

1) Run drakwizard and set the box up as a domain master server including the address of servers further up the line.

2) Run drakwizard and all all the machines with static IPs on my LAN

3) Restart Bind

4) Run nslookup server1.mydomain.ldm where server1 is a machine on the LAN, and is the DNS server address.

After about 10 seconds it times out with a no DNS server available type error although nmap shows port 53 as open. This happens with the firewall off and to date I haven't got an M2007 DNS server running.

Either I'm missing out something or M2007's Bind is stuffed. Any suggestions?
