Recently our master DNS service began logging errors similar to this:
/var/log/messages:Jun 20 13:38:18 inet03 named: malformed transaction: dynamic/efa1f375d76194fa51a3556a97e641e61685f914d446979da50a551a4333ffd7.mkeys.jnl last serial 103538 != transaction first serial 103361
I have never before encountered this error and can find no reference to it on the usual search engines; other than my own questions. Restarting the named daemon appears to have corrected whatever caused it but my questions remain unanswered:
What does the error message mean? What is the cause?
