firewalld not listing any active zones?

by giorgio79   Last Updated January 13, 2018 16:00 PM

When running

[root@host ~]# firewall-cmd --get-active-zones
[root@host ~]#
[root@host ~]# firewall-cmd --get-default-zone
public

I am not getting any active zones. How can I activate a zone?

You activate a zone by binding a network interface or source IP address range(s) to it. Any firewall rules in the zone then apply to that network interface or IP address range(s).

On a similar case, I took a peek with strace and realized, that FirewallD had somehow lost D-Bus access completely.

The easiest fix was to reboot the Linux. That helped and FirewallD saw active zones again.
