Description cjanderson 2014-01-10 04:11:29 UTC
rollerd from the net-dns/dnssec-tools-2.0-r1 package needs Net::DNS::RR::NSEC this to work with nsec3 zone files.

There is no ebuild for this in the portage tree, but I was able to install this from CPAN.

The problem is a bit involved but I will give it a go.

When you sign a zone with NSEC3 and want to use rollerd to do the zone rollovers  you need the perl module Net::DNS::RR::NSEC  installed as well as signing zones without line breaks (-szopts -O full).

The dependancy is here:
 953       } elsif (/\G(nsec3)[ \t]+/igc) {
 954           error ("You are missing required modules for NSEC3 support")
 955             if (!$nsec3capable);

This isn't the same problem as as the zones were already on one line.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup dnssec bind and a signed zone file with nsec3 signed using zonesigner with the "-O full" option
2. ask rollerd to automagically sign the zone. (ie. issue a rollctl -rollzone <zone name>
3. Wait for the zone roll over to start (60 seconds at most by default), and see the error: "You are missing required modules for NSEC3 support"

correct, as well as Net::DNS::SEC and MIME::Base32.

We used an local overlay with 

g-cpan -p <Package name>

@perl any suggestions?
