Raspbian: BIND DNS: "no valid signature found"

Post by peter_b »

[PROBLEM]
Getting weird timeouts when querying local BIND DNS nameserver.
Logs contain the following block of uncomfortable errors:

[SOLUTION]
There are 2 unrelated errors in the above message block:
  1. network unreachable
  2. no valid signature found
1) IPv6 (!) Network unreachable:
Since I only have IPv4 in the local network, I've added "-4" to BIND's startup options in "/etc/default/bind9":

Code: Select all

# startup options for the server
OPTIONS="-4 -u bind"
2) No valid signature found
Actually here's just a workaround :?
I've dissabled dnssec validation.

In /etc/bind/named.conf.options change this:

Code: Select all

    dnssec-validation auto;

to:

Code: Select all

    //dnssec-validation auto;
    dnssec-enable no;
Restart BIND service, and you should be good.
