#7871 [RFE] dns-check-system-records would be _very_ helpful!
Opened 5 months ago by oliver. Modified 2 months ago

Request for enhancement

As an admin I do not only want to list the system records that should be created with dns-update-system-records, especially if the DNS is remote (eg. on AD), I want a tool that will automatically check if all the records that should be there, are there - on all listed DNS servers, eventually with the option to skip the locally listed DNS servers (resolv.conf).


I had the issue that the AD admins removed the DNS records and nobody noticed, until some "strange" issue appeared. I already guessed that the DNS records could be affected and checked them. However, since there are some to check, I though eventually there is a subcommand like dns-check-system-records, analogous to dns-update-system-records. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

Actual behavior

Subcommand non-existing.

Expected behavior

Easy way to check all records on all DNS servers.



Additional info:

This was a customer case; If you want me to create some RHBZ and link the customer case as well, please let me know.
