Description Jeff Garzik 2008-06-12 06:24:38 UTC
Description of problem:
Fedora 8 original 'bind' works 100% with the following configuration line:

     allow-update { netop_admins; key; };

however recent Fedora updates caused a major regression, whereby named refuses
to run, giving the following error:
     mem.c:918: INSIST(ctx->stats[i].gets == 0U) failed.

Upgrading to Fedora 9, the same regression is present.

Removing the "key;" statement, or commenting out the entire
allow-update statement, fixes the problem and permits named to run.


This caused all my DNS servers to fail, when Fedora 8 automatic package updates
were applied, upgrading my bind server in Fedora 8 to bind-9.5.0-27.rc1.fc8.  As
noted, upgrading the systems to Fedora 9 did not help, the bug is present there too.

At the moment, my users are denied the ability to update their domains' in DNS
because of this problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
     and also

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create TSIG MD5 keys with version of bind previous to 9.5.0.
2. verify that all allow-update statements work as expected
3. upgrade to current bind
4. watch bind refuse to run
Actual results:
bind crashes

Expected results:
bind accepts "key;" statement, just like it did in earlier versions.

Additional info:
Full BIND config and zones available upon PRIVATE request.  I cannot give out
that data in bugzilla.

Would it be possible attach named.conf, please? (or send it to me) Zones are not
needed. I'm not able reproduce your problem on my machine. Thanks
