Background

I'm trying to setup a recursive DNSSec Server, with the dnssec-lookaside option. Following this guide.

Error Message

Bind configuration:

named.conf

root@dnssec:/home/jose# cat /etc/bind/named.conf

include "/etc/bind/named.conf.options";

include "/etc/bind/named.conf.options.dnssec";


zone "wetlands.cam"{
        type master;
        file "/etc/bind/db.wetlands.cam";
};

zone "30.20.10.in-addr.arpa"{
        type master;
        file "/etc/bind/db.30.20.10";
};

named.conf.options

root@dnssec:/home/jose# cat /etc/bind/named.conf.options
acl homeLab {
        10.20.30.0/24;
        localhost;
        localnets;
};

options {
        directory "/var/cache/bind";

        recursion yes;
        allow-query { homeLab; };

        forwarders {
                10.20.30.1;
                8.8.8.8;
                8.8.4.4;
        };


        dnssec-enable yes;
        dnssec-validation yes;
        dnssec-lookaside "." trust-anchor auto;

        auth-nxdomain no;    # conform to RFC1035
        listen-on-v6 { none; };

        dnssec-lookaside auto;

};

named.conf.options also includes logging like explained in this post, but no logging file contains information about the error so I omitted it for readability.

named.conf.dnssec

  • named crashed for some reason. You can see the logs with journalctl -u bind9 and add those concerning the crash in the question. – Piotr P. Karwasz Jan 19 at 19:59
  • @PiotrP.Karwasz thanks, added the output of the journalctl command – itasahobby Jan 20 at 12:20
  • Those are the logs from November, 16. We need those from January, 19 between 18:00 and 19:00. Just scroll down in the pager (hitting <Page Down> or G and then <Page Up>) to find them. – Piotr P. Karwasz Jan 20 at 12:57
  • @PiotrP.Karwasz Oh sorry, should be alright now – itasahobby Jan 20 at 13:09

Your bind server failed badly when reading your configuration. Try named-checkconf -p to see if the syntax is correct.

The error you have/had was an assertion, which are used by programmers when they are sure something will never happen. So definitively you hit a bug in bind: the correct behaviour would be to detect the configuration error and print an appropriate error message.

If you can reproduce the bug, you should report it to the bind issue tracker.
