named crashes on incorrect usage of rndc reload command
Last modified: 2014-11-21 12:44:05 EST
Description of problem:
named crashes (process terminates) on incorrect usage of the rndc reload
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Server A is the master of a dom.tld zone
Server B is a slave of the dom.tld zone
On server B type: rndc reload hostname.dom.tld
(the correct syntax would have been: rndc reload dom.tld)
The commandline now gives:
[root@yyyy ~]# rndc reload hostname.dom.tld
rndc: connection to remote host closed
This may indicate that the remote server is using an older version of
the command protocol, this host is not authorized to connect,
or the key is invalid.
The /var/log/messages log gives the following messages:
Aug 1 13:44:01 infiltrator named: view.c:1135: INSIST(result == 0 ||
result == 23) failed
Aug 1 13:44:01 infiltrator named: exiting (due to assertion failure)
After this the named process terminates.
Error messages from RNDC but no crashes of named
