NAMED-CHECKZONE(8)			      BIND9			       NAMED-CHECKZONE(8)

NAME
       named-checkzone, named-compilezone - zone file validity checking or converting tool

SYNOPSIS
       named-checkzone [-d] [-h] [-j] [-q] [-v] [-c class] [-f format] [-F format] [-i mode]
		       [-k mode] [-m mode] [-M mode] [-n mode] [-L serial] [-o filename]
		       [-r mode] [-s style] [-S mode] [-t directory] [-w directory] [-D]
		       [-W mode] {zonename} {filename}

       named-compilezone [-d] [-j] [-q] [-v] [-c class] [-C mode] [-f format] [-F format]
			 [-i mode] [-k mode] [-m mode] [-n mode] [-L serial] [-r mode] [-s style]
			 [-t directory] [-w directory] [-D] [-W mode] {-o filename} {zonename}
			 {filename}

DESCRIPTION
       named-checkzone checks the syntax and integrity of a zone file. It performs the same
       checks as named does when loading a zone. This makes named-checkzone useful for checking
       zone files before configuring them into a name server.

       named-compilezone is similar to named-checkzone, but it always dumps the zone contents to
       a specified file in a specified format. Additionally, it applies stricter check levels by
       default, since the dump output will be used as an actual zone file loaded by named. When
       manually specified otherwise, the check levels must at least be as strict as those
       specified in the named configuration file.

OPTIONS
       -d
	   Enable debugging.

       -h
	   Print the usage summary and exit.

       -q
	   Quiet mode - exit code only.

       -v
	   Print the version of the named-checkzone program and exit.

       -j
	   When loading the zone file read the journal if it exists.

       -c class
	   Specify the class of the zone. If not specified, "IN" is assumed.

       -i mode
	   Perform post-load zone integrity checks. Possible modes are "full" (default),
	   "full-sibling", "local", "local-sibling" and "none".

	   Mode "full" checks that MX records refer to A or AAAA record (both in-zone and
	   out-of-zone hostnames). Mode "local" only checks MX records which refer to in-zone
	   hostnames.

	   Mode "full" checks that SRV records refer to A or AAAA record (both in-zone and
	   out-of-zone hostnames). Mode "local" only checks SRV records which refer to in-zone
	   hostnames.

	   Mode "full" checks that delegation NS records refer to A or AAAA record (both in-zone
	   and out-of-zone hostnames). It also checks that glue address records in the zone match
	   those advertised by the child. Mode "local" only checks NS records which refer to
	   in-zone hostnames or that some required glue exists, that is when the nameserver is in
	   a child zone.

	   Mode "full-sibling" and "local-sibling" disable sibling glue checks but are otherwise
	   the same as "full" and "local" respectively.

	   Mode "none" disables the checks.

       -f format
	   Specify the format of the zone file. Possible formats are "text" (default) and "raw".

       -F format
	   Specify the format of the output file specified. For named-checkzone, this does not
	   cause any effects unless it dumps the zone contents.

	   Possible formats are "text" (default) and "raw" or "raw=N", which store the zone in a
	   binary format for rapid loading by named.  "raw=N" specifies the format version of the
	   raw zone file: if N is 0, the raw file can be read by any version of named; if N is 1,
	   the file can be read by release 9.9.0 or higher. The default is 1.

       -k mode
	   Perform "check-names" checks with the specified failure mode. Possible modes are
	   "fail" (default for named-compilezone), "warn" (default for named-checkzone) and
	   "ignore".

       -L serial
	   When compiling a zone to 'raw' format, set the "source serial" value in the header to
	   the specified serial number. (This is expected to be used primarily for testing
	   purposes.)

       -m mode
	   Specify whether MX records should be checked to see if they are addresses. Possible
	   modes are "fail", "warn" (default) and "ignore".

       -M mode
	   Check if a MX record refers to a CNAME. Possible modes are "fail", "warn" (default)
	   and "ignore".

       -n mode
	   Specify whether NS records should be checked to see if they are addresses. Possible
	   modes are "fail" (default for named-compilezone), "warn" (default for named-checkzone)
	   and "ignore".

       -o filename
	   Write zone output to filename. If filename is - then write to standard out. This is
	   mandatory for named-compilezone.

       -r mode
	   Check for records that are treated as different by DNSSEC but are semantically equal
	   in plain DNS. Possible modes are "fail", "warn" (default) and "ignore".

       -s style
	   Specify the style of the dumped zone file. Possible styles are "full" (default) and
	   "relative". The full format is most suitable for processing automatically by a
	   separate script. On the other hand, the relative format is more human-readable and is
	   thus suitable for editing by hand. For named-checkzone this does not cause any effects
	   unless it dumps the zone contents. It also does not have any meaning if the output
	   format is not text.

       -S mode
	   Check if a SRV record refers to a CNAME. Possible modes are "fail", "warn" (default)
	   and "ignore".

       -t directory
	   Chroot to directory so that include directives in the configuration file are processed
	   as if run by a similarly chrooted named.

       -w directory
	   chdir to directory so that relative filenames in master file $INCLUDE directives work.
	   This is similar to the directory clause in named.conf.

       -D
	   Dump zone file in canonical format. This is always enabled for named-compilezone.

       -W mode
	   Specify whether to check for non-terminal wildcards. Non-terminal wildcards are almost
	   always the result of a failure to understand the wildcard matching algorithm (RFC
	   1034). Possible modes are "warn" (default) and "ignore".

       zonename
	   The domain name of the zone being checked.

       filename
	   The name of the zone file.

RETURN VALUES
       named-checkzone returns an exit status of 1 if errors were detected and 0 otherwise.
