How to Troubleshoot DNS Server Issues

  1. Check the status of the DNS service.
    # svcs -xv dns/server:default
  2. Check the DNS service log.
    # more /var/svc/log/network-dns-server:default.log
  3. Check for syslog messages.
    # grep named /var/adm/messages
  4. Start the named daemon.
    # named -g
  5. After resolving the issue, clear the DNS service.
    # svcadm clear dns/server:default
  6. Verify that the DNS service is back online.
    # svcs dns/server:default
