I have a rather annoying problem with rndc which I have not been able
to resolve despite much searching and many attempts to correct. When
making changes to our DNS entries I have tried to use the following
1. Flush the cache buffers:
2. Stop named:
3. Delete the journal files:
4. Edit the forward and/or reverse zone files as necessary.
5. Restart named:
Everything works fine until the last command which fails with:
rndc: connect failed: connection refused
I can get around this by using "service named start" but I should not
have to do this. Has anyone encountered something similar and can pass
on some words of wisdom?
