("ISC") 2000 2001 2002 Internet Software Consortium. named-checkconf named configuration file syntax checking tool named-checkconf filename DESCRIPTION named-checkconf checks the syntax, but not the semantics, of a named configuration file. The file is parsed and checked for syntax errors, along with all files included by it. If no file is specified, /etc/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. named-checkconf can be run on these files explicitly, however. OPTIONS -h Print the usage summary and exit. -t directory Chroot to directory so that include directives in the configuration file are processed as if run by a similarly chrooted named. -v Print the version of the named-checkconf program and exit. -p Print out the named.conf and included files in canonical form if no errors were detected. -z Perform a test load of all master zones found in named.conf. -j When loading a zonefile read the journal if it exists. filename The name of the configuration file to be checked. If not specified, it defaults to /etc/named.conf. RETURN VALUES named-checkconf returns an exit status of 1 if errors were detected and 0 otherwise.
