    When i'm logged in plesk admin panel > service management it seems dns server is not started (red icon)

    When i do a ps -auxf it seems named is running

    named 3240 0.0 0.2 29996 2744 ? S 20:34 0:00 /usr/sbin/named -u named -c /etc/named.conf -u named -t /var/named/run-root

    In /var/log/messages i see :
    Aug 25 20:35:14 Rayden named[3240]: invalid command from bad auth

    How can i solve this.

    BTW when logged in it shows it header Plesk 7.5.2 but is is upgraded to 7.5.4 , how can i change this .
    Yes i've double checked if update was complete and it has.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Kill named and start bind using the rc script. If you see in Plesk 7.5.2, then the upgrade failed at a point.

    It failed the first time giving an error on tomcat .
    Then i retried update updating base packages and tomcat , then it finished succesfull.

    I have this problem upon investigation it looks like named.conf had an issue.
    It's complaining about missing quotes:
    include /etc/psaptzone.files

    There are two entries like the line above, and another that is quoted:
    include "/etc/psaptzone.files"

    Commenting out these lines or placing quotes around them fixed the rndc error.

    WTF is /etc/psaptzone.files ?

    You had probably installed PowerToys.
    This tool puts this in. You can safely comment that one out!

    I've noticed also that the dates of some packages (base , plesk mauals) are Jan 19, 2038

    Is this normal ???

    Isn't this the best sign that Plesk is the control panel of the future? :)

    It can be a wrong touch, but it's not important.

    named startup problem after upgrade

    Hi everyone,
    just spent last 2 hours on this one. simple fix but thought I would post the fix here. It's sort of in another post but not specific enough for me to initally find the problem..

    was getting an error message:

    Aug 27 09:13:11 oztec named[2672]: starting BIND 9.2.3 -u named -c /etc/named.conf -u named -t /var/named/run-root
    Aug 27 09:13:11 oztec named[2672]: using 1 CPU
    Aug 27 09:13:11 oztec named[2672]: loading configuration from '/etc/named.conf'
    Aug 27 09:13:11 oztec named[2672]: /etc/named.conf:632: expected quoted string near '/'
    Aug 27 09:13:11 oztec named[2672]: loading configuration: unexpected token
    Aug 27 09:13:11 oztec named[2672]: exiting (due to fatal error)
    Aug 27 09:13:11 oztec named: named startup succeeded

    when trying to start bind / named.
    other posts suggested the powertools entry needed additional " ". This proved to be the case but not in /etc/named.conf, but in /var/named/run-root/etc/named.conf
    check for the entry
    include "/etc/psaptzone.files";
    it needs to have the quotation s in there as opposed to
    include /etc/psaptzone.files;

    So I hope this helps someone.
    For your info I am running
    FC2, and just upgraded to latest 7.5.4 plesk

    Apart from this issue, my upgrade from within plesk went perfectly. This issue actually wasn't related to the plesk upgrade at all, but to the powertools script which I installed just prior to the upgrade (clever...not).
