I followed this How-To (http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_server_ubuntu7.10_p4
). However, I also installed Webmin.
The only part where I deviated from the How-To was during the installation. I accidently installed BIND during the installation of Ubuntu when the How-To called for only installing OpenSSH. (page 2 of the install)
I now have a problem where there are two named processes that are typically running at once.
After a cold boot, there is one named process that is running. If I issue a "/etc/init.d/bind9 stop", the process is killed and no longer present. Conversely, the command "/etc/init.d/bind9 start" brings the process back to life.
Browsing into Webmin though, the BIND Server page does not report the server as running even though the named process is running. The same is true in the System & Server Status page in Webmin. It reports BIND as down. If I click on "Start Server" in the BIND Server page, I now have two named processes running.
In order to configure the nameserver, I really need to know which is which. I really don't know if I have two versions installed or am just starting two processes from the same installation.
Either way, I would really appreciate help in troubleshooting this process. After every boot, I have to manually shut one down and start the other.
FYI - there are no errors in the syslog
