Restarting a Name Server with the Same Arguments

5.10.1 Problem

You want to restart named with ndc, but keep the same command-line arguments.

5.10.2 Solution

Specify the command-line arguments after the restart command. For example:

# ndc restart -c /tmp/named.conf

Or, if you're not sure what the command-line arguments were, use:

# ndc exec

The exec command tells named to exec( ) a new copy of itself, including any command-line argument it was started with.

5.10.3 Discussion

If you run ndc from the command line and named is linked against a faulty copy of getopt( ), you may need to specify "- -" as the first argument to restart to make sure the options are passed to named correctly.

BIND 9 name servers don't support restart and exec.
