Description Gijs 2008-07-18 16:57:16 UTC
Description of problem:
The access rights and ownership of the zone/journalizing files are reset to
chmod 640 and the ownership to root:named after I update Bind. Because 'dynamic
updates' requires the named server to be able to write to the journalizing
files, these default access rights won't do.

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update bind
Actual results:
The jnl files have ownership root:named, and chmods 640.

Expected results:
Either the jnl files have ownership named:named, or they have a chmod of 660.

Additional info:
I know the problem also occurred in former versions of Bind, but I'm not sure
