Description adam 1999-12-30 03:00:04 EST
I'm running named in a chroot jail, and using the -a argument to syslogd to
get it to listen on a socket within the jail.  (/jails/named/dev/log)

Information does get logged, but it's logged (I think) with GMT, not with
the adjusted local time zone that everything else is logged with.  Which
leads to stuff like this... (note timestamps)

Dec 29 16:03:36 hostname -- MARK --
Dec 30 00:07:09 hostname named[30851]: Cleaned cache of 434 RRsets
Dec 30 00:07:09 hostname named[30851]: USAGE [...elided...]
Dec 30 00:07:09 hostname named[30851]: NSTATS [...elided...]

"hostname" is running a custom 2.2.12 kernel with the latest sysklogd
package from updates.redhat.com (1.3-3) and named 8.2.2p5.  This also
happens on two other machines I administer, which use custom 2.2.13

Do you have timezone data in your chroot jail?
Comment 2 adam 2000-01-03 12:34:59 EST
nope -- copying /etc/localtime into the chroot jail's "/etc" solves the problem
Comment 3 Andrew Bartlett 2000-12-27 02:07:02 EST
This is similar to bug 18671, should it be up to the application to decide the
current time?  Why can't syslogd do this (and therefore make fakeing logs a
little harder)?
