Bind DNS not reloading zone changes properly

    I'm using Bind (9.8.2) in ISPConfig3 (3.0.3.3) on Fedora 15. When I create a new zone file Bind loads it fine and the new zone appears in my DNS server. However, when I change an existing zone file, Bind does not load the change. I have to manually restart Bind before it will pick up the change. How do I make Bind pickup the changes from ISPConfig without a forced restart?

    Thanks!

    Update ispconfig to the current versiobn (3.0.4.3) and check if the problem still exists. If thats the case, then there might be a problem in the bind version that is installed or a problem in the init script as ispconfig runs the "reload" action of the bind script in /etc/init.d/ after zonefile changes.

    Temporary solution

    In the short term, we hacked Bind to restart upon a zone change instead of reloading. I'm in the process of moving to a new VM so I will update ISPConfig once that move is done and everything is stable.

    Thanks Till

    These are dynamic zones and Bind 9 will not re-read dynamic zones on a reload. I didn't configure these as dynamic zones, that's something ISPConfig did. Is there a way to changes these to static zones?
