First, thank you all for your great assistance.

Basically, DNS was so badly setup that I ended up nuking the
named.conf and rebuild it and re-edit ALL the forward/reverse file.

There were no IN for A/PTR records and missing NS references, etc.
too many errors to troubleshoot, so I decided to start fresh, as
fresh as possible.  /var/adm/messages do not display any named error
messages, things are resolving as they should.

---------- original message ----------

I'm having named issue, ps shows named is running, nslookup just
timeout, telnet to the ip port 53 allows me to connect.

named-checkconf does not return any errors, /var/named.conf looks
fine.  /etc/resolv.conf /etc/hosts /etc/nsswitch.conf all looks like
it should. is the named server itself.  I did not install
the dns stuff, so I'm running out of places to look for problems.

$ ps -ef | grep named
root   758     1  0 19:06:56 ?      0:00 /usr/local/RRBind/sbin/named
root   777   722  0 19:10:59 pts/1  0:00 grep named

$ nslookup
*** Can't find server name for address Non-existent host/domain
*** Default servers are not available

$ telnet 53
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

hardware: sun4u with Solaris 8 running BIND 9.2.1

I need to get this DNS resolve to get some voip servers installation
going, so urgently needing help, thanks.
