named failed to start: undefined symbol: dns_resolver_setudpsize


Hi,

a few hours ago named stopped working and will now no longer startup, it simply gives this msg:

Starting named: /usr/sbin/named: symbol lookup error: /usr/sbin/named: undefined symbol: dns_resolver_setudpsize
[FAILED]

this is the output from the log at the time it stopped working:

i havent changed anything at all on the system lately, it seems to have just randomly died.

i am running CentOS 4.3 with cpanel 10.8.0

anybody got any ideas??

thanks,

Jamie.

Hi,

Are you able to ping from the server ?

#ping google.com

Please make sure that you are using correct resolver name servers in /etc/resolv.conf . Please contact your DC and make sure about /etc/resolv.conf name servers . If they are correct , you should able to upgrade bind using yum.

Thanks,
Rajashree.

Hi all. I had the same problems tonight, on a clean Centos server install, then "yum install bind bind-chroot"

The problem is that the bind-libs package needs to be upgraded as well. This is really a problem with the bind package, it should require the correct version of bind-libs.

Anyway, the solution is to install/upgrade bind-lib. The catch is, if this is your primary dns server, you might not be able to get it with yum because you can't resolve the hostname of your yum repository.

sooo... if your yum update bind-libs is failing, try 'host google.com'. If you can't resolve google.com to an IP address, then you'll need to (temporarily) add a different nameserver to your /etc/resolv.conf so you can get the package with yum.

...Or, you can get the rpm on another machine and (magic) it onto the server. Then install with rpm -i packagename.rpm.

(magic for me is "rz". For you it might be nfs,scp,ftp,a usb thumbdrive, or a thousand other things.)
