Bind 9 - Chroot problems


Hey all.

Just trying to compile bind 9.2.3 on a redhat 9 box. I have followed the tutorial given on this page

http://www.unixwiz.net/techtips/bind9-chroot.html
This was the first error recieved, which i fixed by running bind with the -c switch.

Nov 1 17:10:59 server named[10180]: starting BIND 9.2.3
Nov 1 17:10:59 server named[10180]: using 1 CPU
Nov 1 17:10:59 server named[10180]: loading configuration from '/usr/local/etc/named.conf'
Nov 1 17:10:59 server named[10180]: none:0: open: /usr/local/etc/named.conf: file not found
Nov 1 17:10:59 server named[10180]: loading configuration: file not found
Nov 1 17:10:59 server named[10180]: exiting (due to fatal error)


This is the error below that i am now recieving. Any help would be appreciated.

Nov 1 17:33:57 server named[1261]: loading configuration from '/etc/named.conf'

Well in the chroot directory recreate the directory structure and put the files in there ... also run bind non chrooted and make use of the lsof command to see which data files and libraries it depends on.

You need to copy rndc.key to the etc directory where BIND is being chrooted. Once it chroots it cannot read files outside it's own root, so you have to make sure there's a local copy with the correct path.

Example:
named will be chroot'd to /var/named
using the above config files (/usr/local/etc/rndc.key)
you would need to put it here:
/var/named/usr/local/etc/rndc.key
same with named.conf
