[Opendnssec-user] RE: Build problem with Beta 2 version of OpenDNSSEC

I was finally able to sign the zones. Here are the steps I used:


1.	reset kasp Db and delete all zones and tmp files and signer
config files
2.	renamed test-zone.nl to example.com
3.	removed all comments and trailing spaces in example.com unsigned
zone (as recommended by Matthijs)
4.	used ods-ksmutil to add both zones
5.	Had to manually create the signer configuration files as the
software was giving errors that they did not exist (these were
previously generated automatically at the first time of signing):

[root]/usr/local/var/opendnssec/signconf: ods-signer

connecting to /var/run/opendnssec/engine.sock

cmd> sign example.com

 "Error reading zone config for example.com: [Errno 2] No such file or
directory: u'/usr/local/var/opendnssec/signconf/example.com.xml'"


cmd> sign example-zone.com

 "Error reading zone config for example-zone.com: [Errno 2] No such file
or directory:

6.	$ ods-control start
7.	$ ods-signer

cmd> sign -all


By the way, I signed these zones while integrated with a LunaPCI HSM.


Thank you for all of your help and support!

HI Paul - 

Thanks for the files, and sorry for the slow response.

Both of these files now run on my system with only one problem (see
below). I also had to rename the second zone to example.com, as it
didn't seem to match the test-zone.nl name. 

Currently, the second zone is not correctly signed by the signer (I
think there is an issue with spaces after the $ORIGIN statement). This
can be resolved by removing the spaces (i.e. $ORIGIN

I haven't had a chance to look at the other config files you sent. If
you are still having problems with trunk (and the $ORIGIN change above),
then please let me know. Hopefully the $ORIGIN bug will be fixed soon.
