 35<a name="id2543396"></a><h2>DESCRIPTION</h2>
 36<p><span><strong class="command">named-checkconf</strong></span>
 37      checks the syntax, but not the semantics, of a
 38      <span><strong class="command">named</strong></span> configuration file.  The file is parsed
 39      and checked for syntax errors, along with all files included by it.
 40      If no file is specified, <code class="filename">/etc/named.conf</code> is read
 41      by default.
 42    </p>
 43<p>
 44      Note: files that <span><strong class="command">named</strong></span> reads in separate
 45      parser contexts, such as <code class="filename">rndc.key</code> and
 46      <code class="filename">bind.keys</code>, are not automatically read
 47      by <span><strong class="command">named-checkconf</strong></span>.  Configuration
 48      errors in these files may cause <span><strong class="command">named</strong></span> to
 49      fail to run, even if <span><strong class="command">named-checkconf</strong></span> was
 50      successful.  <span><strong class="command">named-checkconf</strong></span> can be run
 51      on these files explicitly, however.
