NAME

zone2sql - Convert ISC Bind zones to SQL  

SYNOPSIS

zone2sql [OPTIONS]  

DESCRIPTION

Zone2sql parses Bind named.conf files and zonefiles and outputs SQL on standard out, which can then be fed to your database.

zone2sql understands the Bind master file extension '$GENERATE' and will also honour '$ORIGIN' and '$TTL'.

For backends supporting slave operation (currently only the PostgreSQL backend), there is also an option to keep slave zones as slaves, and not convert them to native operation.

By default, zone2sql outputs code suitable for the mysqlbackend, but it can also generate SQL for the Generic PostgreSQL and Oracle backends.  

OPTIONS

Input options:
--named-conf=<filename>
Read <filename> to get the bind configuration
--zone=<zone-file>
Parse only this zone file. Conflicts with --named-conf parameter.
--zone-name=<name>
When parsing a single zone without $ORIGIN statement, set this as the zone name.

Output options:

--bare
Output in a bare format, suitable for further parsing. The output is formatted as follows:
domain_id<TAB>'qname'<TAB>'qtype'<TAB>'content'<TAB>prio<TAB>ttl
--gmysql
Output in format suitable for the default configuration of the Generic MySQL backend.
--gpgsql
Output in format suitable for the default configuration of the Generic PostgreSQL backend.
--mysql
Output in format suitable for the default configuration of the MySQL backend (the default output format).
--oracle
Output in format suitable for the default configuration of the Generic Oracle backend.
--startid=<id>
Use <id> as the forst domain_id generated (defaults to 0).
--transactions
For Oracle and PostgreSQL output, wrap each domain in a transaction for higher speed and integrity.

Other options:

--slave
Maintain slave status of zones listed in named.conf as being slaves. The default behaviour is to convert all zones to native operation.
--on-error-resume-next
Ignore missing files during parsing. Dangerous.
--help
List all options
--verbose
Be verbose during conversion.
