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-names" 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.
