NAME

       zone2sql -

       zone2sql - convert BIND zones to SQL

SYNOPSIS

       zone2sql {--named-conf=PATH,--zone-file=PATH [--zone-name=NAME]} [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 there is also an option to keep slave zones as
       slaves, and not convert them to native operation.

       zone2sql can generate SQL for the Generic MySQL, Generic PostgreSQL, Generic  SQLite3  and
       Generic Oracle backends.

OPTIONS

INPUT OPTIONS

       --named-conf=<PATH>
              Read PATH to get the bind configuration

       --zone=<PATH>
              Parse only the zone file at PATH Conflicts with --named-conf parameter.

       --zone-name=<NAME>
              When parsing a single zone without $ORIGIN statement, set ZONE as the zone name.

BACKENDS

       --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.

       --gsqlite
              Output  in  format  suitable  for  the default configuration of the Generic SQLite3
              backend.

       --goracle
              Output in format suitable for the  default  configuration  of  the  Generic  Oracle
              backend.

       --mydns
              Output in a format suitable for the MyDNS backend.

       --oracle
              Output in format suitable for the default configuration of the Oracle backend.

OUTPUT OPTIONS

       --json-comments
              Parse  JSON  in zonefile comments to set the 'disabled' and 'comment' fields in the
              database. See JSON COMMENTS for more information.

       --transactions
              If the  target  SQL  backend  supports  transactions,  wrap  every  domain  into  a
              transaction for integrity and possibly higher speed.

OTHER OPTIONS

       --filter-duplicate-soa
              If  there's  more than one SOA record in the zone (possibly because it was AXFR'd),
              ignore it. If this option is not set, all SOA records in the zone are emitted.

       --help List all options

       --on-error-resume-next
              Ignore missing zone files during parsing. Dangerous.

       --slave
              Maintain slave status of zones listed in named.conf as being slaves.   The  default
              behaviour is to convert all zones to native operation.

       --verbose
              Be verbose during conversion.

JSON COMMENTS

       The  Generic SQL backends have the 'comment' and 'disabled' fields in the 'records' table.
       The 'comment' field contains a comment for this record (if any) and the  'disabled'  field
       tells PowerDNS if the record can be served to clients.

       When  a zonefile contains a comment like ; json={"comment": "Something", "disabled": true}
       and --json-comments is provided, the 'comment' field  will  contain  "Something"  and  the
       'disabled' field will be set to the database's native true value.

       WARNING:  Using  JSON  comments  to  disable  records  means  that the zone in PowerDNS is
       different from the one served by BIND, as BIND does not handle the disabled status in  the
       comment.
