/usr/sbin/named: symbol lookup error: /usr/sbin/named: undefined symbol: dns_dispatch_hash

July 9, 2008

up2date erased bind and bind-devel rpm and/ maybe also, removed user/group named

Note:- This was an issue on cpanel server, but same solution should work on other systems. ( on non cpanel systems, use  up2date -i  , instead of /scripts/ensurerpm

The problem is similar:  http://bugs.centos.org/print_bug_page.php?bug_id=2247

Reason:-

============

some binaries like   dig,host,cpio etc have immutable attributes

Solution:-

###########

quick solution:-

========================

[root@server var]# cp /etc/named.conf /root/
[root@server var]# cp -apfr /var/named/ /root/
[root@server var]# /scripts/ensurerpm bind-*

Full steps I used to fix

======================

[root@server var]# cp /etc/named.conf /root/
[root@server var]# cp -apfr /var/named/ /root/
[root@server var]# /scripts/ensurerpm bind-*

    Arkadaşlar googleden aratıp gelirseniz hoşgeldiniz diyelim🙂 Problemsiz çalısıyor.
    Eğer siz de named start esnasında şöyle bir hata alırsanız;

    Starting named: /usr/sbin/named: symbol lookup error: /usr/sbin/named: undefined symbol: dns_dispatch_hash

    Bu makaledeki adımları yerine getirin.
    Başarılar.


  3. For me, I did “yum install bind bind-chroot” and I ran into the above problem.

    The issue here is that you also need to update “bind-libs”.

    A simple “yum update bind-libs” should do the trick. If your server is not in a state to do domain lookups because of the named issue, then you might have to temporarily use other DNS server in /etc/resolve.conf . In this case add:
    “nameserver 208.67.222.222” in /etc/resolve.conf and repeat the “yum update bind-libs” command.

    Hope this gets you up quickly.
