From RHEL to CentOS BIND 9

bind-chroot is a supplement package to bind.  You need them both, "bind"
is a dependency of "bind-chroot."

I'm not sure why you are having so many problems.. I have deployed a lot
of bind-chroot'd installations without any problems whatsoever using
"yum install bind-chroot."

Once again, this is not in the scope of this list, so I will call it
quits here.

Got it. That's what I figured since I did have transfers working before
all of 
this went haywire but could not recall. I'll remember this. 

Much appreciated.

At this point, I'm going to uninstall and start over again. It looks
like bind 
and bind-chroot get installed together and mess things up. It turns out,
is why I have mixed non and chrooted configurations as someone pointed

Hope someone who has anything to do with installers is reading this. I
happy to reiterate if you'd like more information.
