	Actually it usually is pretty easy to shift everyone by
	just updating the nameservers in the DHCP leases.

BIND 9.4.2-P2-W1 stops responding
I just upgraded from BIND 9.4.2 to BIND 9.4.2-P2-W1 on Windows Server 2003. The service no longer crashes like it did in P1 and P2, however after about 12 hours of load, named just stops responding to queries completely. The service appears that it is still running but will not respond to any type of query. I've restarted it and it came back to life again. I'm going to watch it more carefully to look for any other types of symptoms. I checked the log files and nothing out of the ordinary was in the logs. In fact, according to the logs, it appears that zone transfers were still happily ...

However, you should read all the docs that come with BIND 9.

If you are upgrading from BIND 4, read doc/misc/migration-4to9." I highly recommend going through all of the docs before m...
