ldns-notify - Man Page
notify DNS servers that updates are available
ldns-notify [options] -z zone servers
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.
- -z zone
The zone that is updated.
- -I address
Source IP to send query from.
Show usage and exit
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[:algo]
Use the given TSIG key and base64-data, and optionally an algorithm to sign the NOTIFY. The algorithm defaults to hmac-md5.sig-alg.reg.int.
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.
The program exits with a 0 exit code if all servers replied an acknowledgement to the notify message, and a failure exit code otherwise.
