Cannot get nsupdate to work (for letsencrypt acme.sh client)

Brett Delmage
I'm having a problem getting nsupdate to work, as shown below.

(Despite reading the man pages I'm not 100% clear about the exact scope of
the grant options and it may not be right. Examples would be helpful.)

I generated the key:

ddns-confgen -k acmesh-ottawatch. -z ottawatch.ca
# To activate this key, place the following in named.conf, and
# in a separate keyfile on the system or systems from which nsupdate
# will be run:
key "acmesh-ottawatch." {
         algorithm hmac-sha256;
         secret <deleted>;
};

- this is included in my named.conf
My config file zone entry has the statements

check-names warn;
update-policy {  grant ottawatch-acmesh. name _acme-challenge.ottawatch.ca. txt;  };
to permit the update and limit the scope.

As I understand, I need check-names (warn | ignore) because
_acme-challenge has an underscore. (How the heck did LE come up with an
incompatible name?)


Here's my nsupdate script:
# cat test-acme

server cacloud.ottawatch.ca
zone ottawatch.ca
debug
update add _acme-challenge.ottawatch.ca. 999 TXT "test 1"
send


# nsupdate -k acmesh-ottawatch.ca test-acme

Re: Cannot get nsupdate to work (for letsencrypt acme.sh client)

Mark Andrews
Thanks for full details.

Your key name usage is not consistent.  acmesh-ottawatch != ottawatch-acmesh

Why are you adding `check-names warn;`?  check-names does NOT apply to TXT
records.

Thank you! Fixed and working.

Previously I was getting the error "bad owner name (check-names)".

So a search for that error led me to this page
https://linux.m2osw.com/setting-bind-get-letsencrypt-wildcards-work-your-system-using-rfc-2136

which states

"The check-names option is required in case the name letsencrypt adds
_acme-challenge to your list of known sub-domains. The underscore
character is not liked by BIND9. This is because it is not part of the
domain name specification. It is not allowed at all. By default BIND will
generate an error and log it and skip over that entry entirely (i.e. it
will not serve that zone at all, albeit all the other zones will work just
fine.)

You can also set this parameter to ignore. In that case, no warning is
emitted in your logs.

Here is the error you get ("bad owner name") when a name uses characters
that are not supposed to be used in a domain name:

09-Feb-2019 03:02:31.988 general: error:
            /var/lib/bind/restarchitect.com.zone:31:
           _acme-challenge.restarchitect.com:
           bad owner name (check-names)

The check-names option is currently the only way to fix this problem (i.e.
you can't use an escape for that one specific letter.)"

-----------------------------------

Is this incorrect? My same error went away when I added it. I certainly
was not familar with the option earlier.

I am running BIND 9.16.5 from Ondřej's PPA for Ubuntu 18.04

That page's "Create and Setup an HMAC Key" uses dnssec-keygen to create
the dynamic key, which I understand has been deprecated in newer versions.
Is that correct? (as I mentioned, I used ddns-confgen.)


> Thanks for full details.

Thank you for looking at them!

Often, preparing a complete help request helps me see something I am
overlooking that is incorrect, so then I don't need to send a help plea
and look like an idiot. Just not in this report, although an earlier
version led me to seeing another problem, which was good.

Check-names applies to elements of records that are supposed to be HOSTNAMES or MAIL DOMAINS (both have the same syntax requirements).  In some cases it is the owner name and others it is elements of the rdata fields.  For PTR it only applies to records that end in in-addr.arpa and ip6.arpa as they are supposed to point to HOSTNAMES.  HOSTNAMES and MAIL DOMAINS are restricted to labels composed of letters, digits and hyphens (LDH).

The full list of records that check-names currently applies to are: A, AAAA, MX, ASFDB, MINFO, NS, PTR, RP, RT, SOA, A6 and SRV.

If I use the example zone on that page *no* errors are reported.

% named-checkzone restarchitect.com restarchitect.com
zone restarchitect.com/IN: loaded serial 1309082308
OK
% cat restarchitect.com
restarchitect.com.    86400    IN    SOA    ns1.m2osw.com. hostmaster.m2osw.com. 1309082308 10800 180 1209600 300

If I modify restarchitect.com to have a A record at _acme-challenge.restarchitect.com then errors will be reported.
On line 6 of restarchitect.com the owner name _acme-challenge.restarchitect.com is bad.

I certainly did get an error originally. I would not have found this
page if I didn't have the error message to search for.

After reviewing my command history I have concluded that it is possible
that I originally tested with an A, not TXT record, thusa causing the
error. Then I switched it, unaware of the difference to check-names.

Thanks for the in-depth 'proof'. I have removed check-names now and it
works as it should.

Unfortunately comments section on that page doesn’t work.  You press preview and you get a error response back.
