Thanks Rowland. 

I have modified Louis' script slightly. My /etc/resolv.conf looks like: 

root at dc01:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf
search dts***m.dt
nameserver 192.168.1xx.x51 

So, as you can see this is one little change I made because of what I
have learned here through the mailing list. (Haven't shared this fact
with Louis. Figured he was busy working on newer scripts so what would
be the point.) 

I found one of your older posts where there was discussion that needs to be included in the /etc/resolv.conf file but the
reference was in a two DC situation. Where each DC is resolving against
the other. I do not think that applies in my situation. 

I will try the line (that failed) manually and report back and look into
the area of the script you mentioned. 

Good night.

This complaint first appears here: ==========Enable bind gssapi and bind9_DLZ =============================== [....] Stopping domain name service...: bind9rndc: connect failed: connection refused . ok [ ok ] Starting domain name service...: bind9. Notice the "refused" appearance. As there is no firewall on this machine, yet, port 953 is not blocked. This DC appears to operating correctly despite this. This may be a 'bind9' issue? Or?
