Description Anthony Messina 2007-07-26 15:12:03 UTC
Description of problem:
bind fails to start with the following error:
view.c:1196: REQUIRE(keyp != ((void *)0) && *keyp == ((void *)0))

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to start bind after having configured tsig keys

Actual results:
bind fails to start

Expected results:
bind should start and initiate a transfer if necessary

Additional info:
Apparently, this is know, but it is critical for anyone who uses keys to
transfer data between master/slave servers.

Here is a link to what I found on this:

Comment 1 Adam Tkac 2007-07-26 15:48:59 UTC
Yes, I know about this problem but I think we could wait to 9.4.2 when noone
reports it. Update will be avaliable very soon (also on
http://people.redhat.com/atkac/bind/ )


Comment 2 Anthony Messina 2007-07-26 15:57:02 UTC
Thanks for the update. When you say "we could wait"...  How long do you
anticipate?  I have a backup server in a remote location that depends on these
updates from the master.  Now that network is non-functional in terms of name

If the wait will be more than a day, what are the alternatives that I can
implement for zone transfers in the mean time?  Would switching to IP based
transfers work?

Also, if I needed to rool-my-own from the src rpm, would I need to specify any
modifyers to the rpmbuild command, or could I just patch using the patch
supplied in the above link and do an rpmbuild without modifiers/conditionals to
mimic the default fedora install of bind?

Again, thanks for your help.  

Comment 3 Adam Tkac 2007-07-26 16:11:10 UTC
With "we could wait" I though when noone reports this problem that means that
nobody uses TSIGs so I don't have to backport patch :) But now, when report
exists I'm going to release it. Update will be avaliable tomorrow


Comment 4 Anthony Messina 2007-07-26 16:18:40 UTC
Thanks a lot.  How do people do transfers then?  Am I  using an old method or

Comment 5 Adam Tkac 2007-07-26 16:22:00 UTC
People often think that Internet is security so do transfers without any
protection because they don't want waste time with correct setup :) Your method
is recommended and modern

Comment 6 Anthony Messina 2007-07-26 19:07:44 UTC
thanks.  glad to hear i'm doing something right :) anyway, your .8 release works
 (i rolled my own rpm) so test #1 is good! i appreciate the quick replies.
