I'm trying to move a Route 53 zone across AWS accounts.

On the former account, I exported with cli53 export > ~/bindfile.

When trying to import (on the latter account):

tom@braskami:~$ cli53 import -f ~/bindfile
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/cli53", line 744, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/bin/cli53", line 741, in main
  File "/usr/local/bin/cli53", line 500, in cmd_import
    zone =, origin=origin, check_origin=False)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/dns/", line 761, in from_text
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/dns/", line 710, in read
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/dns/", line 639, in _rr_line
    rd.choose_relativity(, self.relativize)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/dns/rdtypes/", line 66, in choose_relativity =, relativize)
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'choose_relativity'

Any clue what's going on?

boto: 2.5.2
dnspython: 1.10.0
python: 2.7


No idea sorry. Please attach a minimum test case.
