SYNOPSIS

dns-boot-check [ option... ] filename
dns-boot-check -Help
dns-boot-check -VERSion

DESCRIPTION

The dns-boot-check program is used to check the named(8) configuration file for correctness. It checks for things like the forwards and backwards mappings exactly corresponding, and for the name server records all having address records.

The filename on the command line is the file to be checked. It defaults to /etc/named.boot if not specified.

Suggestions for additional checks that dns-boot-check(1) could perform are most welcome.

OPTIONS

The following options are understood:
-Help Provide some help with using the dns-boot-check program.
-Idirectory
  This option may be used to specify a directory to search for include files. It may be used more than once, the directories will be searched in the order given.
-VERSion Print the version of the dns-boot-check program being executed.
All other options will produce a diagnostic error.

EXAMPLES

To check your named(8) configuration, you need only say
dns-boot-check
and the file named(8) configuration file will be read, and also all of the files it refers to. Various cross checks will be made between the files, too.

If you want to check a named(8) configuration, but without installing it first (which can be important if you need to guarantee continuity of service) put you new configuration files together in a temporary directory, with relative paths.

dns-boot-check -I. etc/named.boot
This will access all of the files as if they were below "." (the current directory) rather than absolute. This can simplify configuration management issues, too.

Suggestions for additional checks that dns-boot-check(1) could perform are most welcome.
