how to preserve permission and owner even if yum updating ?


Hello, all.

When I update linux system(centos 5.x) using yum,
it initialize the permission and owner information automatically.

For example,

First default permission of /var/named is 750.
and I changed the /var/named directory permission to 755,
but after auto yum updating the bind rpm, it changes the permission to 750 that is default permission.

Is there any option or way of yum not to initialize(or change) the permission?


Thanks in advance.

Haven't seen any option like that in either Yum or RPM. Not surprising probably if your permission change is due to some requirement you didn't try to address in other ways. Anyway, if only ISC BIND is your problem then it shouldn't be that hard to 0) script it in the SysV initscript since upgrading will probably require a restart anyway (but that change would be gone if the initscript gets overwritten) or 1) in the autoupdate cronjob (same overwrite prob there), or 2) in some custom cronjob or 3) added as a script to monitoring software you run like Monit or 4) some combination of logwatching and filesystem integrity checking.
