Try to start bind9? Check for any error output? Have a look at syslog?

We can’t do the debug work for you :slight_smile:.

alright thank u

Hi, I am also having the same issue with same OS (Ubuntu 20.04 server). I tried re-installing bind9 and the issue still persists. No error information on any of the logs, it just starts and stops. Did you find the solution to this? Let me know. Thanks.

Same issue here on a fresh 1blu VPS Ubuntu 20.04 install. No error in syslog, nothing configured at all. Tried changing the hosts but no change either.

Tried debian 11, same issue.

No idea what to do lol. Is this some kinda weird special bug? Don’t know if it has to do with the network or hostname setup maybe?

Here are some more infos:
service bind9 restart puts this in syslog

bind9 status shows:

And journalctl -xe

Like to try it out but honestly I think it simply was a Virtuozzo misconfiguration (probably with the networking) that I couldn’t change. I cancelled that VPS and got a different one, everything working there.

There is an bug with OpenVZ …

The latest update, disabling temp iptables did the magic.
Done all updates and turn on iptables again, it works!
