Software enhancements and fixes

What's fixed in this PTF

The named utility and upgrading 3-DNS Controllers (CR 17793)
The named utility now restarts when you reboot a 3-DNS Controller that has been upgraded from a previous version to version 4.0.1.  Note that the named utility only runs on 3-DNS Controllers that are in node mode.

Rerunning the config command after you initially configure the 3-DNS Controller no longer overwrites the /etc/named.conf file.

The Restart 3-DNS Configuration Utility, on the 3-DNS Maintenance Menu, now restarts the 3-DNS web server correctly.
