  • Tryed to implement BIND DNS Mgmt and add an AIX 6.1 Bind9 based DNS Server.
  • Configured SSH for root access.
  • While testing the connection, the application returns the error bind is not running. 


IPAM v4 and later


Issued the following commands to the DNS server:

  • named -V
  • ps -A -o comm,pid,args | grep ^named

The parsing of the value returned named9, which is what causes the application to be not enabled. The parse is looking for named only, so when it sees named9 which doesn't exactly match this, it processes the value as not matching.

Also unable to verify the verification code of the configuration file: /etc/named.conf


Manual configuration of the config file by renaming the file from named9 to named helps to alleviate this issue.

Workaround to verify the verification code:

   # ln /usr/bin/csum /usr/bin/sha1sum
