named-checkzone


SYNOPSIS

       named-checkzone  [ -d ]  [ -j ]  [ -q ]  [ -v ]  [ -c class ]  zonename
       filename


DESCRIPTION

       named-checkzone checks the syntax and integrity of a zone file. It per-
       forms  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.

       -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.

       zonename
              The domain name of the zone being checked.

       filename
              The name of the zone file.


RETURN VALUES
