Description Pavel Odintsov 2014-03-18 14:10:35 CET

We tried to migrate to NSD but can't find any tools like named-checkzone for checking separate zone syntax. Could you add this tool to distributive?

It's very useful tool in many cases:
1) Custom management software which generates zone files for NSD
2) Named to NSD migration (in many cases NSD can't parse Named zones)
3) Ability to check zones sanity before nsd production load

Thank you!

Hi Pavel,

Thanks for the suggestion, this is indeed not available.  I'll see if we can put this on TODO.  (For the short term, memory fixes and statistics are on TODO).

Today, you could (perhaps) abuse nsd-mem, which can read a nsd.conf, reads all the zone files and then prints the memory usage, in doing so, it checks the zone format.

Best regards,

nsd-checkzone doesnt compilling now!
Source get from trunk, but it doesnt have "nsd-checkzone.8.in" file -
