The Question is:
Is it possible to run the command/utility rndc
under a non privileged account ?
I would delegate to a non-proiviliged
user the possibility to reload zones.
I tried to install the image with
privileges, but the command will hang
after the execution (it doesn't return
to the DCL prompt).
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard would not generally expect that reloading BIND
configurations would be a non-privileged operation.
Additionally, installing applications that do not expect to be
installed -- and in particular, installing applications with
enhanced privileges -- can lead to very large security holes.
The OpenVMS Wizard would have to ask the frequency of this task, and
would also have to ask if a captive login or similar other approach
could be used here. (Realize that BIND data is system-critical,
and untrusted access to BIND data can compromise the network.)
