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/bind/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/bind/named.conf.
 

RETURN VALUES

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