Hi All,

I am using Caching DNS server with Bind 9

bind-utils-9.3.4-10.P1.el5_3.1
bind-9.3.4-10.P1.el5_3.1
bind-chroot-9.3.4-10.P1.el5_3.1
system-config-bind-4.0.3-2.el5.centos
bind-libs-9.3.4-10.P1.el5_3.1

I am getting

Error :

named[22851]: mem.c:1061: REQUIRE((((ctx) != ((void *)0)) && (((const
isc__magic_t *)(ctx))->magic == ((('M') << 24 | ('e') << 16 | ('m') << 8 |
('C')))))) failed named[22851]: exiting (due to assertion failure)


Is this related to above bug?

Thanks in advance
shprahi
