Error Plesk Nameserver Service

    I am receiving the following error when trying to start the Plesk Nameserver Service from the Plesk App on a Windows 2003 server.

    "error 997 at start service named: overlapped i/o operation is in progress"

    In the plesk web admin, I cannot add or change domain hosting options. It gives the following error:

    "dnsmng failed

    Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? Microsoft DNS server is disabled.

    Edit your

    C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\dns\etc\named.conf file

    and look right down the bottom to see if anythings out of place

    This file gets messed up, reportedly only when you close your browser / browser crashes in the middle of creating a domain.

    I've been unable to find the cause or replicate, but the fix was to make sure the syntax of domains in this file are correct, and restart named through the plesk taskbar util.

    Either restart it through plesk, or if you cant find it, reboot the server.
