Realm - Realm-related data used by DNSSEC-Tools programs.
The DNSSEC-Tools dtrealms command manages a group of distinct rollover environments running on a single host. These distinct rollover environments are called realms. dtrealms uses a realm file to properly create and manage each of its realms. A realms file is organized in sets of realm records. Each realm record describes the execution environment of a single rollover instance. A realm consists of a set of keyword/value entries. The DNSSEC-Tools realm.pm module manipulates the contents of a realm file. Module interfaces exist for looking up realm records, creating new records, and modifying existing records. Comment lines and blank lines are ignored by the DNSSEC-Tools programs. Comment lines start with either a '#' character or a ';' character. A realm's name may consist of alphabetic characters, numbers, and several special characters. The special characters are the minus sign, the plus sign, the underscore, the comma, the period, the colon, the forward-slash, the space, and the tab. This name is an identifier. The values in a realm's entries may consist of alphabetic characters, numbers, and several special characters. The special characters are the minus sign, the plus sign, the underscore, the comma, the period, the colon, the forward-slash, the space, and the tab.
The fields in a realm record are: * administrator This is the email address for the realm's administrative user. * args The user-specified arguments for the rollover manager. This is not a required field. * configdir This field contains the name of the directory in which dtrealms will find the realm's configuration information. This directory must contain a subdirectory named dnssec-tools, and the realm's configuration file will be stored there. This is a required field. * display This boolean field indicates whether or not the realm should be displayed by the grandvizier program. This is an optional field. * hoard This field contains the pathname to a collection of files used to build a realm. This field is only used by the buildrealms program. * manager This field contains the name of the rollover manager program for the realm. If this is not defined, then rollerd will be used. * realmdir This field contains the name of the directory in which dtrealms will execute the realm's rollover manager. This is a required field. * rollrec The realm's rollrec file. This file will be used by the rollover manager to control the rollover environment. * state This field contains the realm's state. It must be either "active" or "inactive". * statedir This field contains the name of the directory in which rollerd and other DNSSEC-Tools programs will find the realm's state information. If this is not specified, the configdir directory will be used. * user This field contains the name of the user that the realm will be executed as. This is an optional field. This is not yet implemented in dtrealms.
The following are examples of realms: realm "example" state "active" configdir "/realms/configs/example" statedir "/realms/states/example" realmdir "/realms/realms/example" rollrec "demo-example.rollrec" administrator "email@example.com" display "1" manager "rollerd" args "-sleep 600 -loglevel phase -logfile log.example" user "zonemgr" realm "testing" state "inactive" configdir "/realms/configs/testing" realmdir "/realms/realms/testing" rollrec "demo-testing.rollrec" display "1" manager "rollerd-tester" args "-sleep 60 -loglevel tmi -logfile log.testing"
