Description of problem:

Reference: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=143438

In order to support dynamic dns updating (by dhcpd), one of two things need to
be done:

1. if selinux=disabled, the you need ENABLE_ZONE_WRITE=yes in /var/sysconfig/named

2. if selinux is enabled (targeted), then you need named_write_master_zones=1 in

This is not documented anywhere except by examining /etc/init.d/named

There should be some documentation on this (if nowhere else then how able

Yes, sorry about that - I'll add the documentation in the next release
in time for FC4t3 .
Comment 2 Jason Vas Dias 2005-05-17 22:33:09 EDT
This is now fixed with bind-9.3.1-4 in rawhide-2005-05-18 / FC4.
Comment 3 Kumphanart Dansiri 2005-09-22 07:07:17 EDT
The first message, item 1. should be /etc/sysconfig/named in my fc4.
However, I still can't do dynamic update.
