Updates to chroot instructions 2012/08

I just did the chroot and I had to add:

   cp /etc/rndc.key ${CHROOT}/etc/

I had to change the ownership/permissions on ${CHROOT}/var and ${CHROOT}/var/log to root:named 775 to get it to log. So either the user 'named' need's to be writing the logfiles or the permissions need to be changed. I'm still looking into this.

There should also be a note about updating the /etc/logrotate.d/named file the change the path to /chroot/named/var/log/named.log

I'd be happy to write this up but it's my first edit so I wouldn't mind having someone look over my shoulder.

DNSSEC - pointless link

The link in the DNSSEC section points to a very bad article, containing literally no information that couldnt be included here. There should be some sort of config help here. AFAIK you have to tweak config like this:

 options {
   dnssec-validation auto;
   dnssec-lookaside auto;

As i have not mutch of a clue of bind9 (and i dont plan to use it) i would appreciate if someone capable of verifying this could include this into the article. thanks! Fordprefect (talk) 10:06, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Guidelines No Longer Work as of July 2016

The guidelines for setting up a local DNS server, as given on this page, no longer seem to work.

Dig command stalls on both local and global address lookups once the local DNS server is supposedly meant to be running.
