I upgraded to BIND 9.5.0 earlier this week, and after the upgrade I
see a message on one of my BIND 9.5.0 servers:
Jun 25 09:44:00 puck.it.anl.gov named:
[ID 873579 daemon.error] malformed transaction:
cmt227.rev.jnl last serial 6843 != transaction first serial 6842
I am looking at the logs, dns traces, and snoop traces now. I have not
yet concluded what is happening. To what address should I send my
files and summaries? Thanks.
