Getting daemon to run at startup
1st- Hey everybody

2nd - Heres the deal, I've been trying to get my BIND server to run at startup. I uncommented some lines in the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2 file to start it up. Seconds I created a user/group called named /w ID of 200 so that named could use it to fire things up. Third I did a chown on every file I could think of that BIND uses.

Unfortunatly even if I dont get errors at startup the service doesnt start. On the other hand, when I use /usr/sbin/named -u root in the rc script everything starts up nice and easy, but the goal of the exercise here is to make BIND more secure, so I dont want that.

I want it to work correctly before putting the whole thing in a chroot jail, adding dhcpd and linking all that stuff togheter.

Thanks for your time :D

Well I finally found the little thing that was blocking named

the directory /var/run/named didnt have the proper owner, so changed it to named and voilą, job done :)

Thanks anyways
