Backup All Amazon Route53 Zones

Recently I needed to backup all of our Amazon Route53 Zones.

Here is a script I put together

#!/bin/bash
#
# Original script written by Tomas (http://www.lisenet.com)
# Modified by Steve Stonebraker (https://www.brakertech.com)

BACKUP_PATH="/tmp/zones"
ZONES_FILE="all-zones.bak"
DNS_FILE="all-dns.bak"

mkdir -p "$BACKUP_PATH" 2> /dev/null
cd "$BACKUP_PATH"

# get a list of all hosted zones
cli53 list > "$ZONES_FILE" 2>&1

# get a list of domain names only


awk '{ print $1 }' "$ZONES_FILE" > "$DNS_FILE"

# create backup files for each domain
while read -r line; do
        cli53 export --full "$line" > "$line.bak"
done < "$DNS_FILE"

# create an archive to put on S3
tar cvfz "$BACKUP_PATH.tgz" "$BACKUP_PATH"

exit 0
