NAMED.RESTART(8)					      NAMED.RESTART(8)

NAME
       named.restart - stop and	restart	the name server

DESCRIPTION
       This command sends a SIGKILL to the running name	server and then	starts
       a new one.

BUGS
       Does not	check to see if	the name server	is actually running, and could
       use  a  stale  PID cache	file which may result in the death of an unre-
       lated process.

       Does not	wait after killing the old server before starting a  new  one;
       since the server	could take some	time to	die and	the new	one will expe-
       rience a	fatal error if the old one isn't gone by the time  it  starts,
       you can be left in a situation where you	have no	name server at all.
