NAMED-CHECKCONF(8)		    BIND 9		    NAMED-CHECKCONF(8)

NAME
       named-checkconf - named configuration file syntax checking tool

SYNOPSIS
       named-checkconf [-chjlvz] [-p [-x ]] [-t	directory] {filename}

DESCRIPTION
       named-checkconf	checks	the  syntax, but not the semantics, of a named
       configuration file. The file, along with	all files included by  it,  is
       parsed and checked for syntax errors. If	no file	is specified, /usr/lo-
       cal/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.  However, named-checkconf can
       be run on these files explicitly.

OPTIONS
       -h     This option prints the usage summary and exits.

       -j     When loading a zonefile, this option instructs named to read the
	      journal if it exists.

       -l     This  option lists all the configured zones. Each	line of	output
	      contains the zone	name, class (e.g. IN), view,  and  type	 (e.g.
	      primary or secondary).

       -c     This  option specifies that only the "core" configuration	should
	      be checked. This suppresses the loading of plugin	 modules,  and
	      causes all parameters to plugin statements to be ignored.

       -i     This option ignores warnings on deprecated options.

       -p     This  option  prints  out	 the  named.conf and included files in
	      canonical	form if	no errors were detected. See also the  -x  op-
	      tion.

       -t directory
	      This  option instructs named to chroot to	directory, so that in-
	      clude directives in the configuration file are processed	as  if
	      run by a similarly chrooted named.

       -v     This  option  prints  the	version	of the named-checkconf program
	      and exits.

       -x     When printing the	configuration files in	canonical  form,  this
	      option obscures 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     This  option  performs  a	test load of all zones of type primary
	      found in named.conf.

       filename
	      This indicates the name of the configuration file	to be checked.
	      If     not     specified,	    it	   defaults	to    /usr/lo-
	      cal/etc/namedb/named.conf.

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