I'm completely dumbfolded by this situation, the deal is this:
I'm currently setting up an uml-instance of debian to work as a network server as part of a university course.
One part is installing a dns server (bind9 in this case) and I did this without any problems a few weeks ago.
Other services that are installed are ntp, nfs, nis and some simple raid setups.
A few days ago I installed an imap server on the machine (Courier) and while I didn't finish configurating it, everything seemed fine.
Today when I logged in I noticied that dns had stopped working, I checked the logs and noticed that /etc/bind directory was missing expect for rndc.key file.
Since I always hard-reset this machine I thought it was some sort of file system corruption, I checked the startup logs and saw some recovery messages.
The next step was to simply recreate the dns settings, I deleted /etc/bind and reinstalled bind, however when installing bind I get the following messages from apt:
wrote key file "/etc/bind/rndc.key" chgrp: cannot access ´/etc/bind/named.conf* : No such file or directory chmod: cannot access ´/etc/bind/named.conf* : No such file or directory
I have no idea what to do next, any help is appreciated!!
