Dear managers,

thanks a lot for the many responses. On Solaris 10 dns of course is a
service. It's started and checked with the following commands provided
that /etc/named.conf exists and the referenced zone files are correctly
setup (/var/named).

	svcadm enable dns/server
	svcs -l dns/server
	tail -f /var/adm/messages

I had to tweak my /etc/named.conf a bit and still get a rdnc related
warning (I don't care for now), but it works now.

Thanks a lot!
