This post is a follow up to DNS errors please help (this post is now closed).
sunitknandi offered some very useful guidance in fixing a small glitch with the BIND9 / NSD packages provided by setup.
He stated the following as a solution to the problems occurring on this particular provider.
There is an issue with the bind9 package.
Type these in order in a root shell:
update-rc.d bind9.dpkg-dist defaults
update-rc.d bind9.dpkg-dist enable
Bind9 should start working and would start upon reboots. The Ubuntu packaging probably made a mistake. They made the bind9 script an empty script that returns 0 for all cases, while leaving the real script at bind9.dpkg-dist.
I too have the same issue. Fixed it the way I mentioned above.
Have a great day!
Now that actually will bring the DNS systems back into alignment, but I think a better way of going about this is to install the BIND9 packages “apt-get install bind9” BEFORE you ever run the MIAB setup script. I did it this way and my situation was fixed without having to remove / modify the already installed packages after the fact.
