couldn't add command channel 127.0.0.1#953: address in use

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  ]
[root@WNS3 etc]# chkconfig portreserve off

  1. THANKS!
    That is a high value information.
    We just spent half a day searching for a solution too. Who would have guessed with installing bind you get portreserve and funny enough portreserve using the same port actually reserved for named command channel?!
