Spent sometime around this error using chroot bind 9.x
couldn’t add command channel 127.0.0.1#953: address in use
Guys, assuming your bind config is correct – this error is related to service “portserve” running and using this port!
ps -ef|grep portreserve|grep -v grep root 1349 1 0 May06 ? 00:00:00 /sbin/portreserve
stop the service and disable from startup:
service portreserve stop Stopping portreserve: [ OK ] chkconfig portreserve off
