    BIND logs when run in a chroot


    Hello.

    First of all wanted to clarify that this post is not a problem if a query.

    Well, I wanted to ask about BIND9 logs when running within a chroot.

    I have configured a BIND9 in a chroot successfully and within the rsyslog configuration add the line:

    $ AddUnixListenSocket "chroot path"/dev/log

    This line is used to create a socket rsyslog on /var/log/messages so you can write log messages, and otherwise to be within the chroot can not.

    Now my question is this. I have no very clear as BIND9 know you have to send log messages to this socket, because i never define it in the named.conf but also the messages appear in /var/log/messages.

    Well if you need more info. or do not understand my question let me know.

    Many thanks.

    I am not sure what you are looking for but I wouldn't worry about having bind write to the message file as bind can write to it's own log file by configuring the logging in named.conf file.

    Yes. I know the loggin feature of BIND. Is how to use it.

    I also know that the rsyslog has the function of creating a socket to use it within the chroot.

    My question was, how it is that BIND uses this function of rsyslog when running inside a chroot.

    Thank you very much.
