    I'm just setting up a pair of fresh bind servers to replace a legacy box and have decided to take the approach of setting it up from scratch. As I'm doing this from scratch I thought I would use the cluster feature as well so that as I create a Master Zone a slave is created on my second server with zone transfers happening automatically.

    Or at least that was the plan.

    Unfortunately this all works fine except for the fact that no data makes it into the slave zones and the slave zones appear to be created with incorrect permissions.
    named output is as follows:

    Feb 16 09:04:04 dns02 named: transfer of 'wibble.com/IN' from 192.168.20.41#53: connected using 192.168.20.42#59124
    Feb 16 09:04:04 dns02 named: zone wibble.com/IN: transferred serial 1329332532
    Feb 16 09:04:04 dns02 named: zone wibble.com/IN: transfer: could not set file modification time of '/var/named/slaves/wibble.com.hosts': permission denied
    Feb 16 09:04:04 dns02 named: transfer of 'wibble.com/IN' from 192.168.20.41#53: Transfer completed: 1 messages, 73 records, 1674 bytes, 0.003 secs (558000 bytes/sec)
    Feb 16 09:04:04 dns02 named: zone wibble.com/IN: sending notifies (serial 1329332532)

    If anyone could assist I would be most greatful.

    Best Regards
