WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

To start, stop, or restart named on the H-Sphere DNS server, log in as root and run the respective command below.

WARNING:
Don't use kill -9 to stop named, as it may cause information loss!!!

Linux:

starting: /etc/rc.d/init.d/named start
stopping: /etc/rc.d/init.d/named stop
restarting: /etc/rc.d/init.d/named restart

FreeBSD:

For Bind 9.3 and up:

starting: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/named.sh start
stopping: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/named.sh stop
restarting: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/named.sh restart

For Bind 8.x:

starting: /usr/sbin/named -u named
stopping: /usr/sbin/ndc stop -u named
restarting: /usr/sbin/ndc restart -u named

Warning: Without "-u named", the command will run under root.

Usually, an H-Sphere DNS server contains a cron DNS check which starts every 1 or 2 minutes and, if named is not started, starts it. Therefore, don't feel alarmed if you stop named and see that it keeps working for another several minutes.
