NAMED-CHECKCONF(8)		     BIND9		    NAMED-CHECKCONF(8)

NAME
       named-checkconf - named configuration file syntax checking tool

SYNOPSIS
       named-checkconf [-h] [-v] [-j] [-t directory] {filename}	[-p] [-x] [-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/namedb/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.

       -x
	   When	printing the configuration files in canonical form, obscure
	   shared secrets by replacing them with strings of question marks
	   ('?'). This allows the contents of named.conf and related files to
	   be shared --	for example, when submitting bug reports -- without
	   compromising	private	data. This option cannot be used without -p.

       -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/namedb/named.conf.

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