zonecreate are some helper scripts for generating zone files

Project description

zonecreate is a very simple Python project that contains a couple of different scripts/templates that make it easier to manage various different zone files that are in the standard zone file format (BIND/NSD).


  • zone_create

    Is used to create a new zone file, contains the standard stuff, SOA record and some NS records. Nothing else.

  • zone_update_soa

    This is used to update the SOA record of a zone file. Given a zone file it will grab the current SOA record, and update the serial number to the current date + a counter. This way the zone file can be updated twice in the same day and the serial will correctly have increased.


If you would like to hack on this project, you can do it as follows:

$ virtualenv –distribute .venv

$ . .venv/bin/activate

$ python develop

This will set up a new virtualenv and start development, it will also install all the scripts under their bin names.
