I am migrating a primary DNS server from Solaris 10 running bind 9.3.4-P1 to Ubuntu 9.10 running bind 9.6.1-P2 and I am running into issues even running the named process.
I have current copied from the running primary and secondary DNS servers (both on Solaris 10) and I put them in /var/dns (same location as previously used). I updated the /etc/bind/named.conf file and when I attempt to start bind "/etc/init.d/bind9 start" it fails.
The various log files show that it is having permission problems accessing the /var/dns/named.root. Even changing the file and the /var/dns directory to mode 777 I get the same error message.
Attached is from the syslog generated when attempting to start named
All help is appreciated
