haeredes: Confirm delegation of NS and MX records.

[ agpl, dns, program, utils ] [ Propose Tags ]

Haeredes is primarily useful for ISP network administrators. Customers will occasionally decide to switch hosts without alerting the current host; this can cause two problems:

Haeredes can alert administrators when NS/MX records are changed. More detail and usage examples can be found in the man page.


Make sure example.com has the expected name servers, [ab].iana-servers.net:

$ echo "example.com" | haeredes a.iana-servers.net b.iana-servers.net

Check orlitzky.com against only one of the expected two nameservers:

$ echo "orlitzky.com" | haeredes dns1.viabit.com
Domain "orlitzky.com." delegates somewhere else: "dns2.viabit.com."

Check a nonexistent domain (we provide no delegates, since we know .doesnt-exist will not be delegated):

$ echo "foo.doesnt-exist" | haeredes
Domain "foo.doesnt-exist." not delegated.
