    I recently have apparmor on my ubuntu 8.10 server but i when i enabled apparmor after i installed bind9, bind9 would give me error messages such as:

    rndc: connect failed connection refused

    is there any solution to this?

    i also ran the following command:

    named -g -p 53

    and got this error as well:

    18-May-2009 20:54:51.595 starting BIND 9.5.0-P2 -g -p 53
    18-May-2009 20:54:51.595 found 2 CPUs, using 2 worker thread

    Please disable and uninstall AppArmor, and the problem should be gone.

    is there anyway to keep apparmor and bind 9 running? I want a good layer of security for my linux system.

    Thanks for the solution, falko. I had run a dist-upgrade on my box and wondered why bind failed. Checked permissions, they were good. Purged apparmor from the box and all is now good.
