NAMED-CHECKCONF(8)			      BIND9			       NAMED-CHECKCONF(8)

NAME
       named-checkconf - named configuration file syntax checking tool

SYNOPSIS
       named-checkconf [-h] [-v] [-j] [-t directory] {filename} [-p] [-z]

DESCRIPTION
       named-checkconf checks the syntax, but not the semantics, of a named configuration file.
       The file is parsed and checked for syntax errors, along with all files included by it. If
       no file is specified, /etc/named.conf is read by default.

       Note: files that named reads in separate parser contexts, such as rndc.key and bind.keys,
       are not automatically read by named-checkconf. Configuration errors in these files may
       cause named to fail to run, even if named-checkconf was successful.  named-checkconf can
       be run on these files explicitly, however.

OPTIONS
       -h
	   Print the usage summary and exit.

       -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-checkconf program and exit.

       -p
	   Print out the named.conf and included files in canonical form if no errors were
	   detected.

       -z
	   Perform a test load of all master zones found in named.conf.

       -j
	   When loading a zonefile read the journal if it exists.

       filename
	   The name of the configuration file to be checked. If not specified, it defaults to
	   /etc/named.conf.

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