r53dump is a shell script that will connect to AWS Route53 service and dump all zones in Bind format for the specified account. Logging is done to syslog (check /var/log/syslog). Multiple accounts, multiple zones are supported. "cli53" is used for all connectivity with AWS systems. Dumped zones can optionally be sent to s3 automatically.
1) Install r53dump
git clone https://github.com/Win2ix/r53dump.git
2) Install cli53
git clone https://github.com/barnybug/cli53.git
3) Install s3cmd (available via apt-get on Ubuntu/Debian) or download
4) Create /etc/r53dump.conf and add this (or copy a working one):
# Path to cli53 binary cli53=/usr/local/bin/cli53 s3cmd=s3cmd s3bucket="s3://your-bucket"
5) Set your AWS access keys in one file per account (like win2ix.auth). You can have more than one.
The format is like this:
export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=AKIAJGNWBPJJKSWCHEMZ export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY='2ma263OF+16cLlWWl0eS2MdLZa/SdhSTXHGgBAt9'
6) Start r53dump.
./r53dump authConfigFile saveDirectory
authConfigFile = the file created in step 5
saveDirectory = a directory to store downloaded zone files
