I am attempting to install DNS/Bind on a CentOS install that obviously did not include the DNS install option upon original install. I tried to install at the command line as a user with the proper authority and got this error.
[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# yum install bind* -y
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.securehost.com/centos/
14: curl#6 - "Could not resolve host: mirrors.securehost.com; Unknown error"
One of the configured repositories failed (Unknown),
and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:
1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.
2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
packages for the previous distribution release still work).
3. Disable the repository, so yum won't use it by default. Yum will then
just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it again or use
--enablerepo for temporary usage:
yum-config-manager --disable <repoid>
4. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice
yum-config-manager --save --setopt=<repoid>.skip_if_
I updated the etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Bas
e.repo file with the current CentOS working mirror site, http://mirrors.securehost.com/centos/
and not http://mirrorlist.centos.org
since it appeared to be an old link. I still received the same error listed above. I need to resolve this hurdle and any similar noted issues so I can install Bind on CentOS 7.
FYI, this is a CentOS image running on VMWare Fusion so I can run it on my MacBook Pro with OS X Yosemite. I don’t think that matters but just in case.
Please help. Thanks.
