Hi All,
BIND is not logging anything into the log file. Following is my
named.conf section for logging options.

------ logging section from /etc/bind/named.conf file -----

logging {

channel "debug" {
file "/var/log/nameddbg" versions 2 size 50m;
severity info;
print-time yes;
print-category yes;
};

category "default" { "debug"; };
category "general" { "debug"; };
category "database" { "debug"; };
category "security" { "debug"; };
category "config" { "debug"; };
category "resolver" { "debug"; };
category "xfer-in" { "debug"; };
category "xfer-out" { "debug"; };
category "notify" { "debug"; };
category "client" { "debug"; };
category "unmatched" { "debug"; };
category "network" { "debug"; };
category "update" { "debug"; };
category "queries" { "debug"; };
category "dispatch" { "debug"; };
category "dnssec" { "debug"; };
category "lame-servers" { "debug"; };

};




---- rndc shows that logging is enabled ----

debian:/etc/bind# rndc status
number of zones: 5
debug level: 0
xfers running: 0
xfers deferred: 0
soa queries in progress: 0
query logging is ON
recursive clients: 0/1000
tcp clients: 0/100
server is up and running

debian:/etc/bind# ls -l /var/log/nameddbg
-rw-r--r-- 1 root adm 0 2007-06-15 16:45 /var/log/nameddbg


I tried to ask some weired questions to my name server hoping that it
will log such things, but nothing is getting reflected into my log
files. Where do you see the problem?

Thanking you in advance
regards,
Vishwas.
