People: please excuse me , but I tried another attempt to fix the issue
(I have installed the OS from the ISO image from which I installed another box there named is running fine , but unfortunately in this box its not running ), I can't trace it what went wrong ? Named is not starting , named forcestart I tried but no use , later I found that ther is no executables as /usr/sbin/named && /usr/sbin/rndc & rndc-confgen also not found in this server box whats went wrong with this box ?all named dirs & files there execpt /usr/sbin/named & rndc executables :!!!! So how can I rebuild/reinstall this named services in this FreeBSd6.2 box , Expecting your valuable comments to fix this issue : Your Kind attention to the following section : most important ( After a few days effort to fix this issue , I became desperate and done an attempt as follows ) : I made an attempt(Foolish ?I dont know if so please tell me :) ) to make named running in this box : what I did was I copied the /usr/sbin/named executables from my freeBSD-6.2 Desktop-PC to this slave DNS server machines's /usr/sbin dir and done the following [EMAIL PROTECTED] /home/dhanesh]# /etc/rc.d/named forcestart rndc-confgen: not found ///// (HERE it compalined about r n d c : I haven't copied rndc & rndc-confgen from my Desktop -PC ;what they will do ? I mean both rndc & rndc-confgen? is rndc & rndc-confgen necessary for a DNS server ? then I can copy these two files also) ////// Starting named. [EMAIL PROTECTED] /home/dhanesh]# sockstat -4p 53 /// here after copying named exe & and doing named forcestart I found its started working output as follows ) ///// USER COMMAND PID FD PROTO LOCAL ADDRESS FOREIGN ADDRESS bind named 71340 20 udp4 2xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:53 *:* bind named 71340 21 tcp4 2xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:53 *:* bind named 71340 22 udp4 127.0.0.1:53 *:* bind named 71340 23 tcp4 127.0.0.1:53 *:* [EMAIL PROTECTED] /home/dhanesh]# cd /etc/namedb /// here this machine I configued as a slave DNS and found that its pulled out the zone file form master zone file from my primary DNS server ) /// [EMAIL PROTECTED] /etc/namedb]# ls PROTO.localhost-v6.rev make-localhost named.root PROTO.localhost.rev master slave dynamic named.conf [EMAIL PROTECTED] /etc/namedb]# cd slave/ [EMAIL PROTECTED] /etc/namedb/slave]# ls db-kL66bE3v mysite.net.slave //here I found a new file(db-kL66bE3v) created !!! what this new file ? it is an emty file too :) and [EMAIL PROTECTED] /etc/namedb/slave]#vi my.net.slave //shows me that my primary zone file automatically pulled here , I think now this machine is working as a slave DNS Server : /// A Few Questions I have to clarify : Let me ask them to you But my questiona are the follows Q no : Did you think this setup will work well as a slave DNS Server without any issues ( I havn't copied rndc & rndc-confgen) ? Q no. 2 : The step I followed (copying /usr/sbin/named ) from another machine to this server box , is it a right way ? will it make any issues in future ? Q no: 3 : I havn't copied /usr/sbin/rndc & /usr/sbin/rndc-confgen from the other machine to this slave DNS server machine ? what the siginificance og rndc and rndc-confgen ? I f I am not copying these 2 files will make any issues in the working of this server as a slave DNS ? Q no:4 : Whats your advice copy the rndc & rndc executables also to this machine and restart named service ? OR what I did was absolutely wrong , so remove what I have done so far , go for a port installation of bind9 and try again? thanks in advance Dhanesh _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
