Q: I get "transfer of 'example.com/IN' from 192.168.4.12#53: failed while
receiving responses: permission denied" error messages.
A: These indicate a filesystem permission error preventing named creating /
renaming the temporary file. These will usually also have other associated
error messages like
"dumping master file: /etc/named/tmp-XXXX5il3sQ: open: permission denied"
Named needs write permission on the directory containing the file. Named
writes the new cache file to a temporary file then renames it to the name
specified in named.conf to ensure that the contents are always complete.
This is to prevent named loading a partial zone in the event of power
failure or similar interrupting the write of the master file.
Note file names are relative to the directory specified in options and
any chroot directory ([<chroot dir>/][<options dir>]).
