    Hello,

    /scripts/upcp did its usual daily run today and appears to have broken BIND/NAMED. Named is refusing to start with this error:

    From /scripts/upcp
    and

    /etc/named.conf exists (named:named 0777)

    It is a link to /var/named/chroot//etc/named.conf.fixrndc (group named, owner root, 0644), which contains include "/etc/rndc.key";

    /etc/rndc.key exists (named:named 0777), it is a link to /var/named/chroot//etc/rndc.key (named:named, 0660) and contains:

    Code:
    key "rndc-key" {
    	algorithm hmac-md5;
    	secret "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX";
    };

    (where XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is a secret...)


    Please help! What has this broken today? Are these new permissions wrong?

    My server:

    And please, how did they resolve it? Run /scripts/upcp again?

    The last two days were a catastrophe - first courier & mail failed due to wrong compat libs (see another thread) and today bind..

    Is your system in the same condition as skratchit posted initially, or is it simply a matter that named won't start?

    I had the same problem today after a update its totally killed my server's named daemon and i found no help for it what so ever, what I have ended up doing is removing the whole thing and re-installing.....

    using yum, This has fixed the problem for me but now i have other problems, I knew turning automatic updates on was a crap idea.

    Yes, exact same errors, mostly revolving around the 'file not found' part.

    /etc/named.conf.fixrndc and /etc/named.conf are identical at /scripts/cPScript/FileUtils.pm line 264
    Changing ownership of /etc/named.conf: named:named
    Starting named:
    Error in named configuration:
    none:0: open: /etc/named.conf: file not found
    [FAILED]
    ...Done


    none:0: open: /etc/named.conf: file not found

    Just comment out this line in /etc/sysconfig/named.

    #ROOTDIR=/var/named/chroot
