[RT#45306] RNDC & Views
It would be useful if rndc treated views as first-class objects.
Its command syntax has the [view] last, so while several commands act
on "all" when no target is specified, you can't say "all in this view".
There are a number of cases where one would like to do things to
all zones in a view.
The immediate example is this:
rndc freeze/thaw have the syntax:
freeze [zone [class [view]]]
thaw [zone [class [view]]]
I'm in the unfortunate situation of having to do a bulk renumbering of a view that contains a lot (well, for me) of zones..., and I need to do an atomic update, while not freezing other views.
For the next round, it would be useful to have something like: rndc freeze -view internal # Freeze all zones in the "internal" view ... rndc thaw -view internal
Other cases where a view as a whole seems to be a sensible target: rndc flush rndc notify rndc refresh rndc reload rndc retransfer rndc sync
