setup-bind-zone.pl

Creates a new BIND zone, and sets up BIND if needed.

This script is designed to be called from the Cloudmin installer, but can be used anywhere if you like. It creates a DNS domain set with the --zone flag, and whose owner email address is set with --email. The primary nameserver is set with the optional --master flag, which defaults to the system's hostname.

The zone is created in the view specified by the --view flag, or you can have it select a view automatically (if needed) with --auto-view.
