Thank you Andy - this partly helps - I am running in a chroot and indeed the
is in the /var/named/chroot/etc area and has lines which are not correct in
the chroot, namely
After editing the file to make the paths correct pointing to
/var/named/chroot/etc/pki and so on I then see that there are lots of
references to files in /etc/pki/dnssec-keys/production/reverse
and when I checked this directory it is empty and was never populated by the
updated files during the yum update!
So I believe that the named update itself may be faulty with missing files,
unless someone else can confirm that they do have the necessary files:
and many other similar lines in the directory
Presumably the bind-chroot package ought to have also included files which
have appropriate paths in the files referred to when running in the chroot?
Despite this there appear to be missing files even outside the chroot, in
It would be nice to get this sorted out. I don't think there are permissions
problems in my case though.
