Error while initiating named & fail2ban
I configured my VPS which is running on CentOS 6 x64 with the help of Falco Timme's excellent tutorial.
Everything was just fine, except 2 errors those I have mentioned below.
1. When shooting "/etc/init.d/named start" I got the following error.
"/etc/sysconfig/named: line 5: --: command not found"
But the service was started.
My named file seems as follows: (After editing as per Timme's tutorial)
# BIND named process options
# Currently, you can use the following options:
ROOTDIR="/var/named/chroot" -- will run named in a chroot environment.
# you must set up the chroot environment
# (install the bind-chroot package) before
# doing this.
# Those directories are automatically mounted to chroot if they are
# empty in the ROOTDIR directory. It will simplify maintenance of your
# chroot environment.
# - /var/named
# - /etc/pki/dnssec-keys
# - /etc/named
# - /usr/lib64/bind or /usr/lib/bind (architecture dependent)
# Those files are mounted as well if target file doesn't exist in
# - /etc/named.conf
# - /etc/rndc.conf
# - /etc/rndc.key
# - /etc/named.rfc1912.zones
# - /etc/named.dnssec.keys
# - /etc/named.iscdlv.key
# Don't forget to add "$AddUnixListenSocket /var/named/chroot/dev/log"
# line to your /etc/rsyslog.conf file. Otherwise your logging becomes
# broken when rsyslogd daemon is restarted (due update, for example).
# OPTIONS="whatever" -- These additional options will be passed to named
# at startup. Don't add -t here, use ROOTDIR instead.
# KEYTAB_FILE="/dir/file" -- Specify named service keytab file (for GSS-TSIG)
# DISABLE_ZONE_CHECKING -- By default, initscript calls named-checkzone
# utility for every zone to ensure all zones are
# valid before named starts. If you set this option
# to 'yes' then initscript doesn't perform those
2. When shooting "/etc/init.d/fail2ban start" getting an error as follows :

Can someone please help me to fix these issues?
