I have 2 DNS servers for my dns zones (about 7 of them)
Netware 6.5 with named.nlm v 6.03.06 is the master
and Suse 9.2 with named is the slave of each of these zones.

When I stop and start named.nlm on the netware server all works fine.
A few hours later, when the Suse box tries to refresh the zones I get the errors as in the logs below.

My netware dns server (named) has stopped logging for some reason, the logs stopped on Jan 15.
The log entry is from then.

The suse server is designated as an ns for each of the zones,
and it does work initially - i just start getting these errors after a few hours.
If I stop and start named.nlm - it works fine again for a few hours.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

Thanks in advance,
Mike Vlamakis
