Summary Named.exe consuming high CPU (90%)on Ensim Pro server.
This sort of behaviour has been observed on some systems running Ensim Pro for Windows. This issue normally occurs when Microsoft DNS service is also running on the same system.
Ensim Pro for Windows installs ISC Bind (named) as the DNS service and that clashes with Microsoft DNS service.
In order to resolve the issue the Microsoft DNS service needs to be stopped and disabled.
