This error seams to affect the Windows (7) version of unbound just as well.
I get numerous messages (at boot):
Log Name: Application
Date: 3-2-2012 3:59:56
Event ID: 4
Task Category: None
[unbound:0] error: rename(C:\Program Files (x86)\Unbound\root.key.13920-0 to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Unbound\root.key): File exists
Changing acces does not help; unbound resets them to the original failing
The previous version showed no such messages.

That is very inconvenient. This is because it writes to a temp first,
then moves it over the first.

No, it is not allowed to create a new file in the directory. It wants
to create a tempfile to write to, when that has worked, it'll mv the
new over the old. So that failures during the write leave you with a
That part is working: this error may be inconvenient, but the system
I guess you have to chown unbound /my/keydir
or chgrp unbound /my/keydir
This sort of solution becomes system specific. What would work for you?
