getzone transfers a user-specified dns zone from a zone server and displays it in csv1 format on the standard output. This program is here for compatibility with older setups that use getzone to get zone files; newer setups may wish to consider using the fetchzone tool to obtain csv2-compatible zone files.
getzone zone_name zone_server_IP [query_class]
- Name of the dns zone to be transferred.
- IP address of dns server
- Optional argument which can change the query class from 1 (the default) to 255. This may be needed for some versions of Bind.
To obtain the zone example.com from the server 192.168.9.8:
getzone example.com 192.168.9.8
To obtain the zone example.org from the server 10.9.8.78 using a query class of 255:
getzone example.com 10.9.8.78 255
