Named: no version information available

We had a problem today on CentOS release 6.4  when restarting the bind / named service. We had been receiving the error message:

/usr/sbin/named: /usr/lib64/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib64/

This problem may have come about from using the CentAlt version of Bind. We are using 40:9.9.4-1.P2.el6 and we had been using openssl-1.0.0-27.el6_4.2.x86_64  while openssl version 1.0.1e-16.el6_5.4 was available in the Updates channel.

yum update openssl

solved the problems and stopped the libcrypto error message.

      Ravi it looks like you are using Red Hat Linux rather than CentOS – they are more or less the same except that the yum command on Red Hat will use the Red Hat servers to get the latest software packages whereas CentOS will use the free CentOS mirrors. You probably want to sort that out before trying to fix your openssl issue. You probably want to speak to whoever installed Red Hat onto the system.
