I am trying to install bind 9.7.1-P2 from source on a SLES 10 SP3 server.
When I run named from the command line, it runs, but fails to open and
write any of the zone files it downloaded.
named -c /etc/named.conf (yes I am running this a root)
The error is
Sep 9 10:40:05 linuxps named: transfer of
'103.0.10.in-addr.arpa/IN/chase' from 126.96.36.199#53: Transfer
completed: 1 messages, 261 records, 5636 bytes, 0.116 secs (48586 bytes/sec)
Sep 9 10:40:05 linuxps named: zone
103.0.10.in-addr.arpa/IN/chase: sending notifies (serial 2010081601)
Sep 9 10:40:05 linuxps named: dumping master file:
tmp-QJcEgeBZ3h: open: permission denied
There is never a path mentioned in the permission denied message and the
zone files are not written out to disk.
I have set a directory in the options section:
When I run named-checkconf against named.conf, it is always erroring out
against this line(directory line), no matter what I put there or
different syntax I insert. And yes the directory really does exist.
named.conf: line 17: change directory to: '/etc/named' failed: file not
named.conf:line 17: parse failed
What 'file' is named-checkconf looking for? Or is this a bogus error
message? Am I missing something else? I am starting named as root, but
appear to be getting permission issues. It just does not make any sense
