Warnings appear in syslog: key file exists, but using default configuration file

Applicable to:

  • Plesk Onyx for Linux

Symptoms

Warnings can be found in /var/log/syslog :

May 22 22:22:01 test1 rndc[2531]: WARNING: key file (/etc/bind/rndc.key) exists, 
but using default configuration file (/etc/bind/rndc.conf)
May 22 22:22:02 test1 rndc[3223]: WARNING: key file (/etc/bind/rndc.key) exists,
but using default configuration file (/etc/bind/rndc.conf)
May 22 22:22:03 test1 rndc[3353]: WARNING: key file (/etc/bind/rndc.key) exists,
but using default configuration file (/etc/bind/rndc.conf)

Cause

This is Plesk bug with ID #PPPM-6314 which will be fixed in future product updates.

Resolution

As a workaround, move /etc/bind/rndc.conf to another location. After that, /etc/bind/rndc.key will be used.
