SYNOPSIS

ldns-notify [options] -z zone servers

DESCRIPTION

ldns-notify sends a NOTIFY message to DNS servers. This tells them that an updated zone is available at the master servers. It can perform TSIG signatures and it can add a SOA serial number of the updated zone. If a server already has that serial number it will disregard the message.

OPTIONS

-z zone
  The zone that is updated.

-h Show usage and exit

-v Show the version and exit

-s serial
  Append a SOA record indicating the serial number of the updated zone.

-p port
  Use port as destination port (default the DNS port 53) for the UDP packets.

-y key:data
  Use the given TSIG key and base64-data to sign the NOTIFY. Uses the hmac-md5 algorithm.

-d Print verbose debug information. The query that is sent and the query that is received.

-r num Specify the maximum number of retries before notify gives up trying to send the UDP packet.

EXIT CODE

The program exits with a 0 exit code if all servers replied an acknowledgement to the notify message, and a failure exit code otherwise.
