I am getting this message in my logs:

 

Jun 25 10:21:26 imac mDNSResponder[531]: queryrecord_result_callback: mDNS_Lock: Locking failure! mDNS_busy (1) != mDNS_reentrancy (0)

Jun 25 10:21:26 imac mDNSResponder[531]: queryrecord_result_callback: mDNS_Unlock: Locking failure! mDNS_busy (1) != mDNS_reentrancy (0)

 

My DNS server running on a CENTOS 6 box seems to be working fine, except for this message in the iMac.

 

Any ideas would be sincerely appreciated.

 

Environment:

 

iMac 24-inch, Early 2009 running Lion 10.7.4

    This is an old topic, but I'm posting here so that if someone else does a Google search, they'll find the answer.

     

    This behavior is most likely caused by the outbound firewall HandsOff!, in versions of OS X prior to 10.8.4.

     

    I had this very same problem under 10.8.3, and was only able to stop it by uninstalling HandsOff!

     

    After upgrading to 10.8.4, I re-installed HandsOff! to see if anything had changed.

     

    Sure enough, the constant logging has stopped.

    I spoke too soon. The pace of the logging has slowed a little, but it still fills my syslog with messages.
