Excellent, I do run bind, and I am familiar with the rndc key. So the
procedure that should work properly for 4.3 to 4.4 update is:
yum upgrade python-sqlite
yum upgrade sqllite
yum upgrade yum
yum clean all
massage bind rndc keys/files as required so keys match.
You, or anyone else kow of anything else I need to watch for?
