DNSVI(1) DNSVI(1)

NAME

dnsvi - Edit dynamic DNS zones using vi

SYNOPSIS

dnsvi [-igl] [-k keyfile] [-p port] [@nameserver] zone

DESCRIPTION

dnsvi is a frontend for nsupdate. Given a DNS zone name, it uses dig -t AXFR to get all the records in a zone. It then spawns your favorite editor, and upon completion, builds a list of "update add" and "update delete" statements to feed to nsupdate.

OPTIONS

-i --noidnout
If you are updating a punycode domain and you are using bind9 >= 9.14.0, you need to specify -i to be able to update the zone, otherwise there will be a mix of punycode and non-punycode domains which nsupdate will refuse.
-l
Use localhost as nameserver and pass -l (local) to nsupdate.
-k keyfile
Use keyfile for AXFR and nsupdate.
-g
Use Kerberos credentials for nsupdate. See -g in nsupdate(1) for details.
-p port
Use port for AXFR and nsupdate (default: 53).
@nameserver
Query nameserver for zone data and send updates there.

ENVIRONMENT

EDITOR
Editor to use instead of sensible-editor.
