Description sasha 1999-06-18 10:32:19 EDT
after named logs rotated, named continues writing to

/etc/logrotate.d/named should be:

/var/log/named.log {
           /usr/bin/killall -HUP named
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-18 11:10:59 EDT
I believe that
	/usr/sbin/ndc restart
might be preferable.
Comment 2 sasha 1999-06-18 11:14:59 EDT
i see.  agreed.  that, or, perhaps, /etc/rc.d/init.d/named restart.
whichever you think is cleaner.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-25 08:12:59 EDT
I've added named.logrotate in bind-8.2.1. Thanks for the suggestion.

BTW, I did the killall -HUP instead of ndc restart so that the
path to ndc was not wired into the logrotate script.
