route53-transfer

Backup and restore Route53 zones, or transfer between AWS accounts.

Installation

::

pip install route53-transfer

Usage

Backup a zone ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Backup the

example.com
zone to a
CSV
file.

::

route53-transfer dump example.com backup.csv

Use STDOUT instead of a file

::

route53-transfer dump example.com -

Restore a zone ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Restore the

example.com
zone from a
CSV
file.

::

route53-transfer load example.com backup.csv

Use

-
to load from STDIN instead.

Migrate between accounts ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Use the command line switches to override the access and secret keys. Dump from one account, load into another.

::

route53-transfer --access-key-id=ACCOUNT1 --secret-key=SECRET dump example.com
route53-transfer --access-key-id=ACCOUNT2 --secret-key=SECRET load example.com

Working with private zones ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If hosting split-horizon zones, use --private to distinguish private domains.

::

route53-transfer --private dump example.com example-private.csv
route53-transfer dump example.com example-public.csv

When loading private zones, the target VPC region (--vpc-region) and VPC id (--vpc-id) must be specified.

::

route53-transfer --private --vpc-region {target vpc region} --vpc-id {target vpc id} load example.com example-private.csv

In Python ~~~~~~~~~

Use the

load
and
dump
functions to move data.

::

from StringIO import StringIO
from route53_transfer import load, dump
from boto import route53

out = StringIO() con = route53.connect_to_region('universal') dump(con, 'example.com', out)
