NAMED.RESTART(8)        FreeBSD System Manager's Manual       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
       unrelated 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
       experience 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.
