ldns-notify - notify DNS servers that updates are available SYNOPSIS
ldns-notify [options] -z zone servers DESCRIPTION
ldns-notify sends a NOTIFY message to DNS servers. This tells them that an updated zone is available at the master servers. It can perform TSIG signatures and it can add a SOA serial number of the updated zone. If a server already has that serial number it will disregard the message. OPTIONS
-z zone The zone that is updated. -h Show usage and exit -v Show the version and exit -s serial Append a SOA record indicating the serial number of the updated zone. -p port Use port as destination port (default the DNS port 53) for the UDP packets. -y key:data Use the given TSIG key and base64-data to sign the NOTIFY. Uses the hmac-md5 algorithm. -d Print verbose debug information. The query that is sent and the query that is received. -r num Specify the maximum number of retries before notify gives up trying to send the UDP packet. EXIT CODE
The program exits with a 0 exit code if all servers replied an acknowledgement to the notify message, and a failure exit code otherwise. AUTHOR
