Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1017025
BIND10 should be run as user 'named'
Last modified: 2013-12-13 22:41:54 EST
Description of problem:
Because of Bug #1003972 BIND10 has to be run as root at the moment. DHCP servers
create sockets by themselves and is not run as root, they don't have enough
permissions to set proper socket options.
Once DHCP servers are modified to use b10-socketcreator to create socket, BIND10
should be modified to run as 'named' user ("-u named").
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cat /usr/lib/systemd/system/bind10.service
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/bind10 --pid-file /run/bind10/bind10.pid
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/bind10 -u named --pid-file /run/bind10/bind10.pid
Resolved using setcap to gran necessary capabilities to DHCP4/6 servers.
