bind “the working directory is not writable”

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/21

I didn’t notice this bind change for a while, but some time ago after doing an rcnamed restart it would split out this error message:

the working directory is not writable

It seems harmless as BIND still starts:

Starting name server BIND ..done

Anyway, some links that helped me solve it:

The last entry provides the solution:

rcnamed stop
chown named:named /var/lib/named/ -R
rcnamed start
rcnamed status

The latter didn’t show any error message.
