Re: updating & checking DNS zone files

For incrementing your zone's serial number, I usually include zsu to
whatever editor I am using. It doesn't check the zone though. You
can use the aforementioned named-checkzone, etc. for that.

Apart from using Bernstein's tinydns, anyone have any scripts
for looking for problems in zone files or for incrementing the
serial number reliably?
Check out BIND's named-checkzone and named-compilezone, depending on
exactly what you are looking for. There are a number of command
line parameters for fine tuning what you care about, and you can use
the return value to determine if the zone is valid or not.
As for the serial number, that is some simple scripting depending on
what value you use for the serial number.
