NAME

named_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the Internet Name server (named) daemon  

DESCRIPTION

Security-Enhanced Linux secures the named server via flexible mandatory access control.  

BOOLEANS

SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required. So by default SElinux policy does not allow named to write master zone files. If you want to have named update the master zone files you need to set the named_write_master_zones boolean.

setsebool -P named_write_master_zones 1

You can disable SELinux protection for the named daemon by executing:
setsebool -P named_disable_trans 1

service named restart
system-config-securitylevel is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
