Description jes.sorensen 1999-10-27 08:40:30 UTC
Hi It looks like bind in Red Hat 6.1 comes with incorrect init scrupts. Ie. [jes@pcitpdp17 jes]$ rpm -qlp bind-8.2.1-7.i386.rpm /etc/logrotate.d/named /etc/rc.d/init.d/named /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K45named /etc/rc.d/rc1.d/K45named /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/K45named /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/K45named /etc/rc.d/rc4.d/K45named /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/K45named /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K45named named is never launched after a boot, in 6.0 rc.d had S55named instead of K45named Jes

This was a (regrettably, pretty much undocumented) policy change. The general philosophy was to have more servers, especially ones that require extra configuration, off by default, as it increases security. This includes bind, innd, dhcpd, samba, amd, and knfsd. In theory, user's settings with chkconfig would get preserved on upgrade, but this didn't happen with bind because it's one of the packages that also includes the links in the package. Of course, to turn it on, you can do: chkconfig --level 345 bind on or, just use ntsysv.

*** Bug 6411 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** When you upgrade from 8.2 to 8.2.1 then your DNS will be disabled wich is NOT the way I think. It should leave the old settings intact and only disable or better said not-enable when first installing this package. It took me a serious search why some programs didn't work anymore because the DNS wasn't started... PS: I get a strange msg when querying the status: -=-=-=-=-=- /etc/rc.d/init.d/named status named 8.2.1 Tue Oct 12 21:49:04 EDT 1999 root.redhat.com:/usr/src/bs/BUILD/bind-8.2.1/src/bin/named number of zones allocated: 64 debug level: 0 xfers running: 0 xfers deferred: 0 soa queries in progress: 0 query logging is ON server is DONE priming server IS NOT loading its configuration -=-=-=-=-=- It's this last msg about NOT loading its configuration, what does that mean and what should I do to correct it? The process is starting ok now that I've enabled it with "chkconfig"...
