I am trying to set up a bind server. My named.conf file has the following lines

...
options{
...
directory "/var/named";
...
};
...
zone "sly.net"{
type master;
file "data/db.sly.net";
};
...

My file is at /var/named/data/db.sly.net - but when I try to start the server, I get the error

zone sly.net/IN: loading master file data/db.sly.net: file not found
_default/sly.net/IN: file not found

I'm not sure what the issue could be. Is my file in the correct place?

named may be running as a chroot program with lowered privs.....thus the location of /var/named virtually within the chroot environment may be different than the actual location in a non-chrooted environment.

  • I have other issues, but the correct location was /var/named/chroot/var/named/data instead of /var/named/data
