I decided today it was time to install bind9 from ports and I am have having some issues I need help with. Under 8.* I started BIND with the -u bind -g bind flags and a sockstat -4 showed named running as user bind. However, in 9.* I understand the -u bind flag is enough, but the server fails to start since it can open /var/run/named.pid. If I simply run the server with no -u flag, the server starts fine ( except denote below ). Although BIND is running in a jail() by itself, I'd still like for the server to run non-root.
Also, I am getting these two warning in /var/log/messages even though the server runs and answers queries: 1. Mar 10 20:32:13 darken named: couldn't add command channel 127.0.0.1#953: not found 2.
