I'm trying to debug a strange named problem. I've got an old RH 7.x
system that's a name server for a large organization. It's seems to no
longer work in any mode other than debug. I.e. if I run named with the -f
-g -d 5 options and scroll error messages to STDERR, I can do name
resolutions via nslookup or dig. If I run named normally, i.e.
/sbin/service named start or /etc/init.d/named start, then the
nslookup/dig commands time out.
Has anybody run across this sort of problem before? Any thoughts on how
to debug this?
