[Opendnssec-user] Notify debugging

Hi Rick,

Although I found a work-around already, I looked in the 
/var/opendnssec/unsigned directory. This directory is completely empty. 
Apparently, the received zones are stored somewhere else. In the 
/var/opendnssec/tmp directory there are some rug.nl* files (among which a 
rug.nl.axfr), but they contain signed zone information. It also contains the 
earlier mentioned rug.nl.xfrd-state. I have no idea where the unsigned zone 
information is stored.

Can you have a look at /var/opendnssec/unsigned/rug.nl* ?

If the zone changes arrive (I assume the mutliple arrivals are due to zone 
updates, each resulting in a NOTIFY) then you should find it there, probably 
as rug.nl.axfr.

That should help you distinguish if it is a transport problem or a 
signer-trigger problem.

You can manually trigger resigning to see if it is a matter of the new 
arrival not triggering the signer properly, with
ods-signer sign rug.nl
