bind/named rndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused (solution)

service named status
rndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused
named (pid  10557) is running...


This issue is normally caused by a permissions issue where named doesn't have the permissions to read the rndc.key.

Check /var/log/messages:
Jan  4 17:06:22 storagebox named[10753]: none:0: open: /etc/rndc.key: permission denied
Jan  4 17:06:22 storagebox named[10753]: couldn't add command channel 127.0.0.1#953: permission denied
Jan  4 17:06:22 storagebox named[10753]: none:0: open: /etc/rndc.key: permission denied
Jan  4 17:06:22 storagebox named[10753]: couldn't add command channel ::1#953: permission denied


Solution Update /etc/rndc.key Permissions To The Correct Owner:

chown named.named /etc/rndc.key
service named restart
service named status

It is all good now!
