Original Question:
 Hi all,
 I am trying to debug some name server problems, and I can't remember if
 there is a way to purge the cache of previously looked up DNS information.
 I assume that restarting named would purge the cache ( wouldn't it ), but
 was wondering if there is any other way to purge the cache.


Both replies I got support the thought that "kill -HUP" would
do what I want.

Thanks to:
