However, the name server still has an "Error" status.
BIND misconfiguration on the name server.
For new name servers based on RedHat EL 5/CentOS 5/FedoraCore 5/FedoraCore 6 distributions, the following changes should be performed before registration in PBA-S:
Install bind if the package is missing on the server
~# rpm -q bind package bind is not installed ~# yum install bind ...
Verify that the file /etc/named.conf exists and has the proper permissions:
~# chmod 640 /etc/named.conf ~# chown root.named /etc/named.conf
Verify that the file /etc/named.caching-nameserver.conf exists and has the proper permissions:
~# chmod 640 /etc/named.caching-nameserver.conf ~# chown root.named /etc/named.caching-nameserver.conf
Important: verify that
named runs in a chrooted environment:
~# grep ROOTDIR /etc/sysconfig/named ROOTDIR=/var/named/chroot
In this case, the path to all named files begins with "/var/named/chroot":
~# ls -l /var/named/chroot/etc/named.caching-nameserver.conf ~# ls -l /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf
