Symptom:

The M&M DNS Server Controller installer prompts you with a message:
The directory "/var/named" contains links.
Proceed at your own risk.  Do you want to continue? [n]:n

Problem:

The installer re-ranges the file structure of the BIND configuration. Symbolic links can be rendered invalid during the re-arrange.

Solution

We recommend to replace the symbolic links with "real" files/directories or run
the installer and re-create the sym-links afterwards.
E.g. on Linux search for the sym-links inside of the BIND directory:
[root@localhost named]# find . -type l
./chroot/var/run
Then replace the sym-link with a real file/directory and set the correct
ownership and access permissions on the new files/directories.

In any case please take a backup of the BIND configuration before you run the installer.
