Hello list,


I'm setting up a BIND/DNS server (recursive) and I'm facing a problem when I
try to start the "named" automatically on boot (named_enable="YES" in

The result is that the boot process takes a very long time in the "Starting
Standard Daemons" fase. After boot the result of "ndc status" is: (server is
initialising itself) and then nothing happen.

Starting de named manually works just fine.



FreeBSD 4.9

BIND 8.3.6


Can you please help me on this? I'm beginner in FreeBSD.

Sorry for the English.


Thanks in advance,
