    Hi

    I have been fighting my Plesk server all day as it goes down again and again. Messages on the System Event Viewer show the following right BEFORE the server dies:

    The Plesk services monitor show Plesk Name Server off and I can't start it nor from the services monitor or from Plesk's admin panel.

    Any advise will be greatly appreciated

    I should mention that I manage domain's DNS on separate server, I really don't use BIND on my Plesk Server.

    My server is brand new and already the plesk dns is failing and will not come back up. This started when I added a domain alias to a domain just ti test out the feature. Apparently that will break the Plesk DNS :(

    How can I fix this HUGE problem?

    Well, I found that the event viewer was showing the the domain entry from the domain alias was duplicating itself in the DNS file and throwing an "already added" error. So instead of dealing with it, the Plesk DNS server just gives up and fails to start up. Manually going in to the file C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\dns\etc\named.conf and deleting that entire entry as well as the entry in the Plesk interface seems to have repaired this issue.

    Sheesh.
