Hello: I have named running as secondary server on v6.2 It will not start without a specific configuration file set on the command line. After doing some investigation it appears that that is because it runs chrooted and there is not a symlink from /etc/namedb. Is that a correct assumption? I read the man page and it specifies the default configuration file as /etc/namedb/named.conf and along with this file there are master and slave directories. Would I make the /etc/namedb/named.conf file to be a symlink to /var/named/etc/namedb/named.conf?
There are some other entries in rc.conf related to named that appear in my primary nameserver rc.conf file that relate to getting it up at boot but I have lost root access to that machine so I cannot recover the rc.conf details and I do not remember what document- ation I was using to set it up. I was advised to start named as a user other than root but when I tried that named would not start because the user I set it to does not have write permission in the directory that has the pid file. When named starts at boot what user does it run as, by default? Thank you for any guidance.
