13.6 Running DNS Server in chroot Mode

To load novell-named with -t (chroot) option, make sure that the following directories are created under the chroot directory with permissions to user specified with -u option:

  • The configuration file directory - /etc/opt/novell/named

  • The log file directory - /var/opt/novell/log/named

  • The pid directory - /var/opt/novell/run/named

  • /etc/rndc.key

In addition to this, edit the load command with the chroot path in the /etc/init.d/novell-named script.
