NAMED.RESTART(8)            System Manager's Manual           NAMED.RESTART(8)



NAME
       named.restart - stop and restart the name server

DESCRIPTION
       This command sends a SIGKILL to the running name server and then starts
       a new one.

BUGS
       Does not check to see if the name server is actually running, and could
       use  a  stale  PID cache file which may result in the death of an unre-
       lated process.

       Does not wait after killing the old server before starting a  new  one;
       since the server could take some time to die and the new one will expe-
       rience a fatal error if the old one isn't gone by the time  it  starts,
       you can be left in a situation where you have no name server at all.
