Bind fails to start with status=6/NOTCONFIGURED after upgrade to SLES 15 SP4
This document (000020819) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
# systemctl start named Job for named.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status named.service" and "journalctl -xeu named.service" for details. # journalctl -xeu named.service ... Oct 20 13:28:23 host15sp4 root: Warning: "/usr/share/bind/createNamedConfInclude" does not exist or is not executable. Check /etc/sysconfig/named Oct 20 13:28:23 host15sp4 systemd: named.service: Control process exited, code=exited, status=6/NOTCONFIGURED ...
The file /etc/sysconfig/named contains the following line.
The following line is present in /etc/named.conf.
The file /etc/named.conf.include existed before the upgrade to 15 SP4, but is not present after the upgrade.
Then, edit the file /etc/named.conf and remove the following line.
Now start named.service.
# systemctl start named.service
The file /etc/named.conf.include was created by createNamedConfInclude in previous versions of bind. Since createNamedConfInclude does not exist in SLES 15 SP4, /etc/named.conf.include is never created and must be removed from the config.
One other known situation that can lead to bind not starting after an upgrade to SLES 15 SP4 is documented here:
Bind fails to start with "configuring logging: permission denied" after upgrade to SLES 15 SP4
