Hello , I have this script that when I run it against this zone file I get this error


==> ms-fix-ad-rrs.pl CMS.LAN.db -v Internal

Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at /local/bin/ms-fix-ad-rrs.pl line 110, <> line 1709.

Can anyone have a look to see whats the issue?
ms-fix-ad-rrs-.txt
CMS.LAN.txt

The error message is telling you that $rrs{$zone} is undefined.

More specifically, CMS.LAN (which is what $zone resolves to) is not a key of the %rrs hash.

Perl is case sensitive, so a hash key of 'CMS.LAN' is not the same key as 'cms.lan'.  Your %rrs hash does have a 'cms.lan' key.

So, maybe all you need to do is lowercase $zone either when it's being assigned or when you use it in the join statement on line 110.

my $dclist = join ( ", " , @{ $rrs{lc $zone} } );

My #39969334 post shows how to compensate for capital letters in $zone.

However, since you haven't explained what your output expectation is, I can't say if there are any other adjustments that will be need to be applied.
