CentOS 5 Server :: Named Won't Start \ Named Stop But Does Not Start Again?
Oct 28, 2009
i've made a big update of almost 300Mb.I'had a working DNS server.Now, when i boot the box, named works and it resolves all the clients.If i make any change (enter a new client for example) and of course i restart named (service named restart), named stop but does not start again !!!In order to get a working named, i 'm obliged to reboot the box?
Mandriva 2009, BIND 9.5.0-P2. Named will start however I'm getting the above error as well as these:
14-Mar-2009 15:45:37.084 general: error: zone 0.in-addr.arpa/IN: loading from master file /var/lib/named/var/named/reverse/named.zero failed: file not found 14-Mar-2009 15:45:37.084 general: error: zone 0.0.127.in-addr.arpa/IN: loading from master file /var/lib/named/var/named/reverse/named.local failed: file not found
Named shows to be running but with the errors above I know it's not running correctly. I also copied the above dir's over to /var/lib/named/var/lib/named which is where I 'believe' it's chroot'd at, though I could be wrong since I'm unfamiliar with chroot.
Just for information in case if it is important to start dhcpd and named: Sep 16 20:26:44 LINUX-SRV named: nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server - Server is unavailable Sep 16 20:26:44 LINUX-SRV named: nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server - Server is unavailable
Secondly Both config files in /etc/sysconfig set parameters to start in jail root but
OS CentOS 5.4 I have a DNS server that is logging all named and dns requests to the chrooted named directory. By default named logs to /var/log/messages but I want to isolate all the dns queries and requests to separate files. I know I can add entries to /etc/syslog.conf to "roll" the logs and logrotate should pick them up but fuzzy as to the syntax. I don't know what "tag" to use in the first fieild. for example
# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher. # Don't log private authentication messages! *.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none/var/log/messages
I am new in configuring named.I want to set my firewall (Fedora 11) as a name server. The local domain is a Windows domain. I'd like internal users translate domain name into IP on this server when they go to the internet. After reading some posts on the web, I set up named as below. It seems the named does the job but with some problems.
1) When I start the server, I couldn't find the named process even if the file "named" is in /etc/init.d. I can browse Internet on the server with domain name (DNS works locally). But internal users couldn't get the domain name translated. If I shutdown the server at this stage, it will shutdown within 1 minute.
2) If I run "service named start" after the server boot up, I see process "named" and named work okay. Both internal user and local host can browse Internet with domain name. However, any command starting with "service named" has no response after this, such as "service named status" or "service named stop". I can see it shows "stopping named" and this last forever. I have to kill the process then restart named server so that named may run again.
3) If I shutdown the server now, it will take 4-5 minute instead of 1 minute in 1). The shutdown stuck at "shutdown named" for 4 minutes. Even if I kill process named before the shutdown, it will take 4-5 minutes.
It took me a week on this issue. I appreciate if you could take a look my configure files and guide me through this.
I updated bind to version bind-9.3.4-6.0.3.P1.el5_2 today, and then I started getting "Starting named: named: user 'named' unknown" messages. Selinux is enabled. ID named shows: uid=25(named) gid=25(named) groups=25(named) context=root:system_r:unconfined_t:SystemLow-SystemHigh
I configure named and stumble upon the following problem: named is serious about user rights, every config file named uses should be named:named. I set rights to named:named as follows, but they get changed to root:named when I restart named as root. The same thing happens with SELinux context. This results in access denied type errors.
I replaced an old server (Fedora 3) with a new machine running CentOS 5.4. Unfortunately, I'm having some problems with "named".
Once in a while the "named" daemon crashes so hard, that I can't even restart it using
because the console freezes at "Shutting down named ...". I already waited for about 20 mins, but nothing happened. I cancelled the process using CTRL+C and typed "reboot" to restart the machine. After rebooting the "named" service works fine, but sooner or later it crashes again.
I also don't think it's a config problem, because I applied the "named.conf" from the former server where the whole "named" service worked fine and never crashed before. I'm a little confused, I also googled a lot nad could not find anything that exactly matches my problem. Is this a known problem?
I am having this problem everytime I execute the yum command: There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was: No module named cElementTree
Please install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly. It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is: 2.4.3 (#1, Sep 3 2009, 15:37:12) [GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-46)]
I'm configuring a new Centos 5.5 server in replacement of an old W2K server.The topology of our network is simple : one file/dhcp/dns relay server and workstations (PC's and some MAC's) plus network printers and scanners.All the workstations have dynamic IP addresses (easier because a lot of 'dynamic' changes : new persons with their own laptop, ...) and the server and printers/scanners have fixed IP addresses.I edited the dhcpd.conf (see here underneath), I have the file dhcpd.leases but it doesn't start !
I and setting up a home web server using Ubuntu 10.04 server (local only). I am currently using Webmin 1.53 to access it remotely all is going great very easy to use. Webmin - Check, ftps-fileZilla - Check, Apache -It Works BUT I cant seam to set up Apache as a named server using Bind DSN. Tried most of the help in the fourms and ..... I think my problems is in the master server selection, do i have to use [URL]... or can i just use myservername. I have tryed both with no luck. First time with the server addition.
I need to set up a named server for a class room with 10 imaginary hosts the sub domain managed by this name server is s123456.eca.edu.au where 123456 is to be replaced by your student id. The named server will forward unresolved queries to the dns server.

i am using putty to connect to my server and wanted to restart mysql server. searched the internet and found thatcommand is /etc/init.d/mysqld start or stopbut it did not worked.then tried /etc/init.d/mysql stop or startthis also did not worked.
I am trying to give access to ONE single user to start and shutdown tomcat server. The problem being, when I enter syntax: username ALL= /etc/init.d/tomcat5, /usr/local/tomcat/webapps, PASSWD:ALL This gives the user access to start and stop tomcat but also gives user access to start and stop other services within /etc/init.d - such as httpd etc... What is the proper way to give user access to start and stop service, and limiting that power to only one service....
I've set this up as a primary dns server, Bind is the only thing running on it, no gui, etc. I followed the default settings so I have a named.conf, named.conf.options, and named.conf.local file.
I have a log file I labeled as named.log in this path /var/log/bind. I'm using logrotate to rotate out the file.
My problem is that after syslogd restarts in the morning. My named.log file don't start logging info until I restart Bind. The new named.log file gets created and the old files rotate out and compress. All of the other log files in /var/log, syslog, messages, mail, etc, rotate out and compress like they should, after syslogd restarts.
I know that I could restart Bind using Cron but I shouldn't have to.
Below are snips of the files I'm using.
I named this one 'bind' and it's in the directory /etc/logrotate.d
