Tool Needed for Bulk Nameserver Lookup

I am getting ready to relocate data centers, and am trying to compile a list of DNS changes that will be needed.  I have a spreadsheet of hundreds of domain names that are owned by my company, and hosted at the old data center.  I'm looking for a tool that would allow me to lookup the nameservers and IP for each of the domains, and generate a list.  I've looked at Sam Spade - but it looks like it needs custom scripts for bulk lookup, and the site with the documentation seems to be down.  What I need to end up with is a text file or spreadsheet showing, domain, nameservers, and IP if possible.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Dwight

If you have a linux server, you can use this little bash-script
#!/bin/sh

export LC_MESSAGES=C

echo '"hostname";"ip address";"nameservers"' > lookup-result.csv
while read HOST; do
    IP=$(host -t a  $HOST | awk '{print $4}' | tr '\n' ' ')
    NS=$(host -t ns $HOST | awk '{print $4}' | tr '\n' ' ')
    echo "\"$HOST\";\"$IP\";\"$NS\"" >> lookup-result.csv
done < lookup-domains.txt

Open in new window

The scripts needs a file lookup-domains.txt in your working directory containing one domain name per line and will give you a csv-file with three columns
