I am using Taroon-re1007.RC1.0-i386-es. The permissions associated with
/var/named are 750 with root.named ownership. When you set up a slave DNS
server, the zone file creation fails.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2003-10-17 11:02:12 EDT
Slave zones should be setup in a subdirectory to /var/named, perhaps call slave
chown named.named /var/named/slave

Having /var/named owned by named is a potential security hole.  Basically if
someone breaks into named server then can manipulate your name resolution files.
 With the current ownership they won't be able to.
