howtos:bind-dhcpd-apparmor

This is an addition to bind-apparmor and will automatically update bind when dhcp leases has been given out.

First check apparmor, mine looks like this:

# Last Modified: Mon Oct  6 20:46:31 2008
#include <tunables/global>
/usr/sbin/named {
  #include <abstractions/base>
  #include <abstractions/nameservice>
  #include <abstractions/nis>

  capability net_bind_service,
  capability setgid,
  capability setuid,
  capability sys_chroot,

  /usr/sbin/named mr,
  /var/lib/named/dev/random r,
  /var/lib/named/etc/127.0.0 r,
  /var/lib/named/etc/bind/named.conf r,
  /var/lib/named/etc/bind/named.conf.local r,
  /var/lib/named/etc/bind/rndc.key r,
  /var/lib/named/etc/localhost r,
  /var/lib/named/etc/localtime r,
  /var/lib/named/etc/named.run a,
  /var/lib/named/etc/root.hints r,
  /var/lib/named/etc/sites/domingo.dk/** rw,
  /var/lib/named/etc/named.run rw,
  /var/lib/named/var/run/named.pid w,
}

It can be a really pain in the b*d but every time you make changes to your bind configuration (adding files and such), apparmor will block read/write access and prevent bind from working. Fortunately apparmor tells you what it has blocked so you can update your definition file and reload it.

Next is to generate a shared secret for intercommunication between dhcpd and bind:

sudo dnssec-keygen -r /dev/urandom -a HMAC-MD5 -b 128 -n USER DHCP_UPDATER

Grab the key from the file:

sudo cat Kdhcp_updater.*.private|grep Key

The output will be something like this:

Key: 9B7OkWhzwA+QZMenKqChVw==

Now do some changes to /etc/bind/named.conf.local and insert our key and allow dhcp updating:

key DHCP_UPDATER {
    algorithm HMAC-MD5.SIG-ALG.REG.INT;
    
        # Important: Replace this key with your generated key.
	# Also note that the key should be surrounded by quotes.
	secret "9B7OkWhzwA+QZMenKqChVw==";
};		

zone "domingo.dk" IN {
	type master;
	file "sites/domingo.dk/forward.zone";
	allow-transfer { 127.0.0.1; };
	allow-update { key DHCP_UPDATER; };    # This gives dhcp the update capabilities on the zone
	allow-query { any; };
	zone-statistics yes;
	notify no;
	also-notify {  };
};

zone "1.16.172.in-addr.arpa" {
	type master;
	file "sites/domingo.dk/reverse.zone";
	allow-transfer { 127.0.0.1; };
	allow-update { key DHCP_UPDATER; };    # This gives dhcp the update capabilities on the reverse zone
	allow-query { any; };
	zone-statistics yes;
	notify no;
	also-notify {  };
};

Go into the dhcp server config file:

sudo nano  /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
ddns-update-style interim;
ignore client-updates;      # Overwrite client configured FQHNs
ddns-domainname "domingo.dk.";
ddns-rev-domainname "in-addr.arpa.";

one-lease-per-client false;
allow bootp;
option T150 code 150 = string;

default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;

log-facility local7;

key DHCP_UPDATER {
    algorithm HMAC-MD5.SIG-ALG.REG.INT;

    # Important: Replace this key with your generated key.
    # Also note that the key should be surrounded by quotes.
    secret "9B7OkWhzwA+QZMenKqChVw==";
};

zone domingo.dk. {
  primary 127.0.0.1;
  key DHCP_UPDATER;
}

zone 1.16.172.in-addr.arpa. {
  primary 127.0.0.1;
  key DHCP_UPDATER;
}


subnet 172.16.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
    interface eth0;
    range 172.16.1.100 172.16.1.200;
    default-lease-time 6000;
    max-lease-time 7200;
    option domain-name "domingo.dk";
    option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
    option routers 172.16.1.1;
    option domain-name-servers 172.16.1.1 , 193.162.153.164 , 194.239.134.83;
    option time-offset -3600;
    option ntp-servers dk.pool.ntp.org;

Now bounce the bind and dhcp services:

sudo /etc/init.d/bind9 restart
sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart

Now whenever a new lease is dealt out the DNS records should be updated accordingly.

If you grain to a halt somewhere in the process a good place to look is in the syslog:

tail -f /var/log/syslog

I don't know why but I constantly end up being blocked by apparmor. So start looking for apparmor errors in the syslog when you head into trouble.
