I have setup BIND 9.2.1 on Redhat 8.0 and am trying to get a Win2k Domain controller to update it but it does not work. On the 2k machine I get the error "Dynamic registration or deregistration of one or more DNS records failed because no DNS servers are available." On the Redhat box I get:

Apr 5 14:07:15 ns1 named[648]: journal file /etc/192.168.1.rev.jnl does not exist, creating it
Apr 5 14:07:15 ns1 named[648]: /etc/192.168.1.rev.jnl: create: permission denied

My named.conf file looks like this:

options {
directory "/etc";
pid-file "/var/run/named/named.pid";
};

zone "home.mydomain.co.uk" {
type master;
file "/etc/home.mydomain.co.uk.hosts";
allow-update {
192.168.1.100;
};
notify yes;
};


zone "1.168.192.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
file "/etc/192.168.1.rev";
allow-update {
192.168.1.100;
};
check-names ignore;
};

logging {
category update {
default_debug;
};
};



Any help appreciated

I have managed to fix this and thought I would post the answer.

The named service was running as user named which did not have access to write and create files in the /etc folder. I created a folder /etc/dns and gave the named user rights to it and all is working fine now.
