This function is useful if your BIND configuration file is corrupt, or if duplicate nameserver configuration files cause DNS problems for your server.


  • Do not modify nameserver configuration files while this process runs.
  • Only run this process (or the dnscleanup script) on servers that use BIND nameservers. Do not run this process on servers that use any other nameserver (for example, MyDNS and NSD).
