mydnscheck — Check zone data for consistency and syntax.

Synopsis

mydnscheck [-c, --consistency] [-C, --consistency-only] [-D, --database=dbname] [-h, --host=hostname] [-p, --password[=password]] [-u, --user=username] [-v, --verbose] [--help] [--version] [ZONE...]

Description

mydnscheck scans the zones named on the command line for syntax. If no zones are specified, all zones are scanned. If the -c (or -C) option is specified, additional database consistency checks are performed.

The program writes all results to stdout in a format that both humans and computers should be able to read. Each problem found is listed on a separate line, with a TAB character in between each field.

The fields listed are:

MESSAGE .. SOA ID .. RR ID .. NAME .. TTL .. TYPE .. DATA

If stderr is a terminal, a progress meter is displayed if scanning all zones.
