Severity: 2-Critical


It is possible that the zone transfer daemon (zxfrd) can crash if the /var disk partition fills up and zxfrd needs to increase the size of its database.


zxfrd may crash and restart. This process may repeat depending on the need for space on restart.


DNS Express configured Full /var partition Changes to the zone database require more space to be allocated for zxfrd.


Free up space in the /var partition.

Fix Information

zxfrd now correctly handles the out of space condition.
