NAMED-CHECKZONE(8)		     BIND9		    NAMED-CHECKZONE(8)

NAME
       named-checkzone - zone file validity checking tool

SYNOPSIS
       named-checkzone [-d] [-j] [-q] [-v] [-c class] [-k mode]	[-n mode]
		       [-o filename] [-t directory] [-w	directory] [-D]
		       {zonename} {filename}

DESCRIPTION
       named-checkzone checks the syntax and integrity of a zone file. It
       performs	the same checks	as named does when loading a zone. This	makes
       named-checkzone useful for checking zone	files before configuring them
       into a name server.

OPTIONS
       -d     Enable debugging.

       -q     Quiet mode - exit	code only.

       -v     Print the	version	of the named-checkzone program and exit.

       -j     When loading the zone file read the journal if it	exists.

       -c class
	      Specify the class	of the zone. If	not specified "IN" is assumed.

       -k mode
	      Perform "check-name" checks with the specified failure mode.
	      Possible modes are "fail", "warn"	(default) and "ignore".

       -n mode
	      Specify whether NS records should	be checked to see if they are
	      addresses. Possible modes	are "fail", "warn" (default) and
	      "ignore".

       -o filename
	      Write zone output	to filename.

       -t directory
	      chroot to	directory so that include directives in	the
	      configuration file are processed as if run by a similarly
	      chrooted named.

       -w directory
	      chdir to directory so that relative filenames in master file
	      $INCLUDE directives work.	This is	similar	to the directory
	      clause in	named.conf.

       -D     Dump zone	file in	canonical format.

       zonename
	      The domain name of the zone being	checked.

       filename
	      The name of the zone file.

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