rndc and rndc-confgen need to have same default understanding of key
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:38 EST
Description of problem:rndc and rndc-confgen, by default, don't use
the same nomenclature for the key name ("rndc-key" vs. "rndc.key").
This makes them incompatible without hand edits.
Version-Release number of selected component (if
How reproducible: Every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "rndc-confgen -a" for automatic configuration.
2. Configure bind so that it will start (any valid config will do).
3. Run "service named start".
4. Run "rndc status" and watch it spew forth "rndc: no key definition
for name rndckey"
Actual results: Error message as above
Expected results: rndc should have been able to find the key as per
the manpage for rndc-confgen.
Additional info: Editing /etc/rndc.key and changing the options and
server references to "rndc-key" instead of "rndc.key" fixes the
problem. Be sure not to change the include line, however.
Fixed in bind--9.2.3-11.src.rpm
