I am moving my system from RH 7.2 to FC5. I moved my zones to var/named/chroot/var/named and when I restart named I get a message in my log that says
named: zone oop.com/IN: loading master file oop.com permission denied. Any ideas?
Maybe the UID of the user you're trying to run named as has changed between OSes, so file permissions got messed up?
Obviously it's running chrooted, is it the "named" user?
Just make sure that an ls -l of the zone files identifies the owner as being the same user who's trying to run named (which is the name after the -u switch in the startup script).
Thanks. I found the problem. I had copied my zones to the named dir. Apparently there is some protect on the files in that dir. As a work around, I copied files in that dir, cut and pasted my zones and renamed the file. This worked. Any ideas on what this is. I did make sure that the UID was the same before I did the work around.
