Re: named + chroot

I hardlinked the files because I figure the rh config tools access the main etc-based files rather than the chrooted files when making changes. Hardlinking simplifies the process of not having to copy those two files to the chroot, but I don't believe a chroot environment mandates unique files.

The original problem I had, however, was installing the bind-chroot package broke bind (at least it did for me). It didn't automatically copy (or hardlink) the /etc/named.conf and /etc/rndc.key files over to the chroot environment automatically.

Thanks for your insight. I'm curious to know if your rndc.key went missing or if it wasn't copied properly in the first place.

chroot.  I've been running a public DNS for quite some time like that
without issues(KNOCK ON WOOD...)  At one point I think I was missing my
rndc.key reference within my named.conf file, once I corrected the path and
had that file within my chroot/etc/dir I was good to go.  Let me know if you
need more help with this.

Subject: named + chroot

I initially installed the bind package alone and then I installed bind-chroot and caching-nameserver. This caused rndc to start giving errors which I traced back to bind-chroot not containing the appropriate named.conf and rndc.key files; to resolve this, I hardlinked the /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf file to /etc/named.conf and /var/named/chroot/etc/rndc.key to /etc/rndc.key.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?
