There seems to be to many folders or occurences of /var/named/chroot in my filestystem. I will try to map these correctly below and hopefully someone can explain it to me or tell me how to fix it.
First I have this instance:
/root/chroot (chroot has green arrow) This directory should not exist should it?
then there is also:
/var/named/chroot (no green arrow on chroot)
from there I can click on chroot and follow this path
/chroot/var/named/chroot (green arrow on chroot)
from there I can click on chroot again and follow this path
/chroot/var/namedchroot (green arrow on chroot)
here is where the mystery for me is, I can continue doing this. It is like some constant loop. I kept following this "loop" clicking through each and ended up with over 70 open windows!
Somehow I don't think this is part of the chroot jail (but I could be wrong!). I think some how I just had a mojor operator error while loading BIND.
If it is the latter how can I remove all these extra directories leaving the main intact or would it be easier to back up the files in th main and remove them all then rebuild?
I think you're talking about symlinks. Symlinks aren't real files or directories, they just point to files or directories. And I guess that /chroot/var/named/chroot is just a symlink to /var/named/chroot because it's a chroot jail. Don't remove these symlinks, they are important. The loop you're in is nothing to worry about!
