Just a follow up, I've added some debug statements to bin/named/unix/os.c to see the files that named is trying to set the effective gid for, and I see: [ID 873 daemon.warning] Trying to open: '/var/run/named.pid'. [ID 873 daemon.warning] unable to set effective gid to 0: Not owner [ID 873 daemon.info] generating session key for dynamic DNS [ID 873 daemon.warning] Trying to open: '/var/run/named/session.key'.
We are running bind in a chrooted environment, running named as user 'named' on a Solaris 10 server: /bind/sbin/named -t /chroot/domain -u named Only when we make root's primary id to be 0, we can get rid of the warning. We tried adding root to the group 'root', and we still get the warning. We've set /chroot/domain/var/run ownership to: drwxrwxr-x 4 root other And named.pid gets created correctly: -rw-r--r-- 1 named named It could be something simple that I am missing.. we'll well see. Any thoughts?
