NAME
named-checkzone - zone file validity checking tool
SYNOPSIS
named-checkzone [-djqv] [-c class] [-k mode] [-n mode] [-o filename] [-t directory] [-w directory] [-D] zonename filename
DESCRIPTION
The named-checkzone utility checks the syntax and integrity of a zone file. It performs the same checks as named(1M) does when loading a zone. The named-checkzone utility is useful for checking zone files before configuring them into a name server.
OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -c class Specify the class of the zone. If not specified, "IN" is assumed. -d Enable debugging. -D Dump zone file in canonical format. -k mode Perform "check-name" checks with the specified failure mode. Possible modes are "fail", "warn" (the default) and "ignore". -j Read the journal, if it exists, when loading the zone file. -n mode Specify whether NS records should be checked to see if they are addresses. Possible modes are "fail", "warn" (the default) and "ignore". -o filename Write zone output to filename. -q Run in quiet mode, reporting only the exit status. -t directory chroot to directory so that include directives in the configuration file are processed as if run by a similarly chrooted named. -v Print the version of the named-checkzone program and exit. -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.
OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: filename The name of the zone file. zonename The domain name of the zone being checked.
EXIT STATUS
0 No errors were detected. 1 An error was detected.
