FUNCTIONS

gen_bind_zone_from_powerdns_db

Usage:

 gen_bind_zone_from_powerdns_db(%args) -> any

Generate BIND zone configuration from information in PowerDNS database.

This function is not exported by default, but exportable.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • db_dsn => str (default: "DBI:mysql:database=pdns")

  • db_password => str

  • db_user => str

  • dbh => obj

  • default_ns => array[net::hostname]

  • domain => net::hostname

  • domain_id => uint

  • workaround_cname_and_other_data => bool (default: 1)

    Whether to avoid having CNAME record for a name as well as other record types.

    This is a workaround for a common misconfiguration. Bind will reject the whole zone if there is CNAME record for a name (e.g. 'www') as well as other record types (e.g. 'A' or 'TXT'). The workaround is to skip those A/TXT records and only keep the CNAME record.

  • workaround_root_cname => bool (default: 1)

    Whether to avoid having CNAME record for a name as well as other record types.

    CNAME on a root node (host='') does not make sense, so the workaround is to ignore the root CNAME.

  • workaround_underscore_in_host => bool (default: 1)

    Whether to convert underscores in hostname to dashes.

    Underscore is not a valid character in hostname. This workaround can help a bit by automatically converting underscores to dashes. Note that it does not ensure hostnames like foo_.example.com to become valid as foo-.example.com is also not a valid hostname.

Return value: (any)
