Hi Dale, hi everyone.

Thanks. I now have the managed keys cleared:

Dec  9 06:57:33 hh3 named[3125]: managed-keys-zone ./IN: loaded serial 0

> Stop bind and see if /var/run/named/named.pid remains. You may have a

I had a go at that:

rm /var/run/named/named.pid
rm: cannot remove `/var/run/named/named.pid': Too many levels of 
symbolic links

I have:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  root    14 Dec  9 05:36 named -> /var/run/named

Removing /var/run/named clears the error but it returns on restarting named.

Also the:

Dec  9 06:57:33 hh3 named[3125]: command channel listening on
Dec  9 06:57:33 hh3 named[3125]: couldn't add command channel ::1#953: 
address not available


As I say, dns is working fine. I'd just like to clear the errors.
