17.5. Setting up the rndc Service

The ipa-dns-install command does not automatically configure the system's rndc service. This must be configured manually, after DNS is configured for IdM.
  1. Create the rndc configuration file and key.
    [root@server ~]# /usr/sbin/rndc-confgen -a
    [root@server ~]# /sbin/restorecon /etc/rndc.conf
    This may require some user input to create entropy while the key is being created.
  2. Change the owner and permissions of the rndc key file.
    [root@server ~]# chown root:named /etc/rndc.key
    [root@server ~]# chmod 0640 /etc/rndc.key
