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.

 

Usage/Setup:

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

http://s3tools.org/s3cmd

4) Create /etc/r53dump.conf and add this (or copy a working one):

vi /etc/r53dump.conf

# 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
