CentOS 5 Server :: "named" Crashes Once In A While?
Mar 8, 2010
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'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?
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 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.
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.
Ive been searching half the internet for a solution for a strange problem im having with a server (CentOS 5.2 Final). For no apparent reason, the server will just be powered off.I've looked in the dmesg log and /var/log/messages file, but that doesnt show anything, except the "syslogd 1.4.1: restart." message after booting it up again, and hours in advance of the crash a "suhosin" alert message.
1) ssh to a remote centos server using X11 forwarding 2) open the virt-manager remote application (the virtualization management app) 3) Open the remote console
Just to be clear, my local X11 crashes. I get back to the log in screen.
I get in my Xorg log:
Fatal server error:
-Is this enough for a bug report? -How I can make X dump a core file for better debugging? -Do -debug RPM packages still exist, and if so, should I install one for the X server and will this help with debugging, and if so, how do I install it.
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 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 have been finding the solution of this problem from last 2 days but i am still unable to get a clue what's happening?I have a virtual dedicated server in godaddy with CENTOS5 operating system. The problem is occurring with the named service. It is becoming dead within 1 hour of starting it./named status gives named is dead but subsys is locked.The issue is their in google but it has no solution.Anybody have a idea what's going on ... i am fed up of starting teh named service again and again.
Been hunting around and trying this for a few days now, without any success.I have configured a CentOS 5.5 box to start up named on boot. I have a Windows 7 machine currently going straight to the router for its DNS, that I want to point to this box instead.While I have done all the tests on the Linux box, and everything says it's working, my Windows 7 box just can't seem to contact the named service.While I am certain that my firewalls are configured correctly ( as I was able to connect through with Cyberkit on the other ports that are open ), I have even switched off the firewalls on both machines entirely to rule them out. And they still can't connect.

I am using CentOS 5 with a couple extra repos; KDE, RPMforge, adobe and a repo provided by Mike A. Harris which has very new Firefox(3.6.3) and other packages. Understandably I am using an, at press time, unsupported version of Firefox. (I use updated packages at Adobe, KDE, and of Firefox for bleeding edge media support and website testing)
Most sites are working fine, including all sites that I have tried at the www.centos.org domain. Wikipedia, Pandora, AOL Mail, Dell, Facebook, Hulu, Google, Linksys, all of the other sites I have built and many more seem to work fine. When directing Firefox to anything on the CentOS wiki X seems to crash (the screen goes blank for a second, it flashes a Console login such as found at ctrl+alt+F1 and the gives me the X login screen) running services are un-interrupted, but all GUI programs close (Firefox and OpenOffice do recover data). I was running yum from a console and it was not interrupted.
Has anyone else had this issue with a newer version of Firefox? Again it is only seeming to affect the CentOS wiki. Not a worry since I only use the wiki for reference configuring my machine, and Konqueror browses it just fine. Anything I should do to help developers and other users? Bug reports? Ideas on how to fix it?
Attempting to install CentOS 5.5 on my desktop box crashes spectacularly. (See [URL]The LiveCD does boot and appears to work, but also fills the screen with random, blinking characters early in the boot process.I was hoping I built a fairly ordinary box, so I'm surprised by this crash. It's an ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 790GX HDMI ATX AMD motherboard. Full specs here:[URL]
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
