Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10227
"ndc restart" doesn't honour bind's gid/uid setting
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
When Bind has been started with e.g. '-u bind -g bind', and if you do 'ndc
restart', bind will be restarted as root, not as bind:bind.
This seems to be the problem on other Unix variants too, so this is
probably a bug in ndc.
This is an ndc bug, and it will be fixed in bind-8.2.2_P5-10, in Raw Hide
(ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/rawhide/). I've sent a patch to ISC, so that they
can incorporate our fix if they don't have a better solution.
Thanks a lot!
Could you also re-consider bug #8062? The glibc21 patch breaks non-glibc21
builds. Fixing this wouldn't be that difficult, even some attempt of mine to
fix the patch is included there :)
