Description Russell Stuart 2001-10-31 20:39:07 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.12-0.1custom i686)

Description of problem:
After a default installation running "rndc stop" to flush the name server's
journals and then stop it gives an error message.  The reason is confusion
over the name of the key used by rndc.  In /etc/rndc.conf it is called
"key" in some places and "rndckey" in others.  The same thing happens in

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a default installation of bind.rpm and caching-nameserver.rpm
2. Run /etc/rc.d/init.d/named start
3. Run rndc stop

Actual Results:  rndc: get key definition: not found 

Expected Results:  rndc: stop command successful

Work around: change all the key references in /etc/named.conf and
/etc/rndc.conf to "rndckey".
