you should configure it to write the slave zone files into named/slaves or some subdirectory like that, and then make sure the directory is owned by the user bind runs as. one of the following two commands will work:

Code: Select all

chown bind:bind /var/named/chroot/var/named/slaves
chown named:named /var/named/chroot/var/named/slaves
Watch out for the Manners Taliban!
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?
