salt.modules.dig

Compendium of generic DNS utilities. The 'dig' command line tool must be installed in order to use this module.

salt.modules.dig.A(host, nameserver=None)

Return the A record for host.

Always returns a list.

CLI Example:

salt ns1 dig.A www.google.com
salt.modules.dig.AAAA(host, nameserver=None)

Return the AAAA record for host.

Always returns a list.

CLI Example:

salt ns1 dig.AAAA www.google.com
salt.modules.dig.MX(domain, resolve=False, nameserver=None)

Return a list of lists for the MX of domain.

If the resolve argument is True, resolve IPs for the servers.

It's limited to one IP, because although in practice it's very rarely a round robin, it is an acceptable configuration and pulling just one IP lets the data be similar to the non-resolved version. If you think an MX has multiple IPs, don't use the resolver here, resolve them in a separate step.

CLI Example:

salt ns1 dig.MX google.com
salt.modules.dig.NS(domain, resolve=True, nameserver=None)

Return a list of IPs of the nameservers for domain

If resolve is False, don't resolve names.

CLI Example:

salt ns1 dig.NS google.com
salt.modules.dig.SPF(domain, record=u'SPF', nameserver=None)

Return the allowed IPv4 ranges in the SPF record for domain.

If record is SPF and the SPF record is empty, the TXT record will be searched automatically. If you know the domain uses TXT and not SPF, specifying that will save a lookup.

CLI Example:

salt ns1 dig.SPF google.com
salt.modules.dig.TXT(host, nameserver=None)

Return the TXT record for host.

Always returns a list.

CLI Example:

salt ns1 dig.TXT google.com
salt.modules.dig.check_ip(addr)

Check if address is a valid IP. returns True if valid, otherwise False.

CLI Example:

salt ns1 dig.check_ip 127.0.0.1
salt ns1 dig.check_ip 1111:2222:3333:4444:5555:6666:7777:8888
