    This morning when checking my email I got my daily system check. In the system check were a few lines that read like this

    Sep 3 23:42:01 host named[1247]: logging channel 'audit_log' file '/var/log/named.log': permission denied

    I did a locate for &named.log& and there was not one anywhere on the machine. Can someone tell me what would be causing this and how I can fix it? Should I create the log file? Is this process not being run as root therefore not being able to create a log there? Thanks for the help ahead of time

    touch /var/log/named.log
    chown named:named /var/log/named.log

    this should make the error go away
