It is as you say. That would explain things. At present, my primary name server is one of the diskless clients. Thus it would not be able to answer queries until the file server was up again. And although the file server acts as backup name server, it would want to synchronize with the primary name server first. I don't recall having the primary nameserver NFS-rooted a week or so ago when I first encountered this, but it's entirely possible. Too tricky for my own good. Thanks for the pointer. -- |/"\ John D.
