    Plesk is supposed to restart bind/named automatically. It sounds as if it is unable to do that, or maybe your Plesk install is corrupted. You may want to first check your logs immediately after making a change to the DNS to see if there are any errors logged. I don't remember if you are running RH or not, but if so, then 'tail -f /var/log/messages'. Upon restarting, you should see a message similar to 'named startup succeeded' in the log.

    Looks ok to me. There are 4 pairs of entries. Each time it starts up, it is logging the 'Starting', then the result 'command channel listening'.

    So if you manually restarted it (or made changes) 4 times, then this looks perfectly normal.

    Right, that's what I suspected in the first place. It appears that Plesk is not automatically restarting your bind/named service upon changing the DNS for the domain.

    As a possible workaround, if you are using Plesk 7.5.3, you can go to Server - Event Manager. Create a new Event Handler. Pick 'Domain DNS zone updated', pick a priority, User 'root', fill in the command for your OS to restart bind. Then test again.
