When using AppArmor, it will only affect processes which are started _after_
AppArmor. So if named was still running, the new AppArmor processes will not
have any effect.

If you don't want to stop AppArmor totally, you can disable the DNS profile.
It's located in


If you move this file to /etc/apparmor/profiles/extras/ and restart AppArmor,
this profile will no longer be active. If you'd like to keep AppArmor active
and want to use nsupdate, you'll have to dig into the AppArmor configuration.
