[stork-users] BIND9 and stork

Thanks for the response. The problem appears to be that named is not configured with JSON. I'm working with what is in the CentOS repos which does not include JSON support, though it sounds like they might be adding it in the near future.

Do you know of some way to add JSON support without building from scratch?

Hi Jesse,

A couple of things I can think of:

- Is named configured with json? Does the statistics channel produce
   json formatted stats?

- What is your configured "controls" clause? Stork will only maintain
   one control channel, so if you have multiple lines here, perhaps add
   the one Stork needs to use as first.

- The same yields for "statistics-channel".

- Do you have the rndc key configured in named.conf?

Good luck, best regards,
