rhel5 bind9 the working directory is not writable
I installed a test vmware network running a win2k8 R2 DC and 3 rhel5 nodes. the DC is working as the master DNS as well.
I configured one rhel5 to become the slave name server of the DC. When I start the named for the first time it create the slave zone file correctly in the zones dir but when i restart the named again (/etc/init.d/network restart) it gives "the working directory is not writable" message and any changes done in the master zone are not getting updated.
However after sometime I see another set of messages saying zone transfer is started and then it writes any updates in the master server to the slave zone file.
This is not a chroot setup and /var/named and all sub dirs are owned by named:named with 644. SELinux is in enforced mode and all messages (shown in sealert tool) are corrected.
I setup this using bind, bind-devel and caching only rpms in the rhel 5 dvd.
Any help on getting rid of this message and geetting the slave file to update immediately with bind restart is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
