NAME

       ldns-notify - notify DNS servers that updates are available

SYNOPSIS

       ldns-notify [options] -z zone servers

DESCRIPTION

       ldns-notify sends a NOTIFY message to DNS servers. This tells them that an updated zone is
       available at the master servers. It can perform TSIG signatures  and  it  can  add  a  SOA
       serial  number  of  the  updated zone.  If a server already has that serial number it will
       disregard the message.

OPTIONS

       -z zone
              The zone that is updated.

       -h     Show usage and exit

       -v     Show the version and exit

       -s serial
              Append a SOA record indicating the serial number of the updated zone.

       -p port
              Use port as destination port (default the DNS port 53) for the UDP packets.

       -y key:data
              Use the given TSIG key and base64-data  to  sign  the  NOTIFY.  Uses  the  hmac-md5
              algorithm.

       -d     Print  verbose  debug  information.  The  query  that is sent and the query that is
              received.

       -r num Specify the maximum number of retries before notify gives up trying to send the UDP
              packet.

EXIT CODE

       The  program  exits  with  a  0 exit code if all servers replied an acknowledgement to the
       notify message, and a failure exit code otherwise.
