LLE10235 : Howto flush the DNS cache under linux

Symptom:

You need to flush your DNS cache because it seems to be changed but your system did not check that yet!

Cause:

none

Solution:

In lunux the DNS cache is managed by the nscd daemon. You just have to restart this daemon to flush your cache. On most linux operating systems you can use:

/etc/init.d/nscd restart

For a debian system or equivalent I always use the invoke-rc.d command:

 invoke-rc.d nscd restart

This will do the job.
