Description William H. Haller 2016-02-01 16:32:13 EST
Description of problem: Upgraded nsd from updates. nsd starts, but due to ownership of /etc/nsd - it has permission problems reading zone files. Changed to nsd:nsd to fix that. Big problem is that it no longer actually serves or distributes zone information to slaves.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.1.7

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade
2. Realize you can't resolve your domain
3. Scream silently

Actual results: Failed domain resolution

Expected results: Upgrade that works

Additional info: Slave reports complaints of
zone ... received error code NOT IMPL from master
zone ... received error code SERVER NOT AUTHORITATIVE FOR ZONE from master_IP
zone ... from master: no tsig in first packet of reply

Master additionally reports
error: /var/lib/nsd/nsd.db: wrong type of file along with the permission errors, but correcting the ownership of /etc/nsd seemed to make that go away as well - master starts and restarts without error - it just won't serve information via nslookup on it.

Restoring the previous F22 version of the NSD package returns the system to normal operation.

Upgrading from what version-release to what version-release?

Something like this may show you which revision you had before and after upgrading:

sudo dnf history info nsd |grep nsd
Comment 2 William H. Haller 2016-02-23 22:11:43 EST
From the previous released working version for f22 nsd-3.2.18-2.fc22.x86_64
Comment 3 William H. Haller 2016-06-20 16:37:55 EDT
Wiping out the database and restarting from text files created a proper database on F23 - so the only issue would be upgrade between versions.
Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 15:24:26 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
