Bad dns zone

Hi:

I am at my wits end. I have a Netware 5.1sp7 server running dns and it
is doing translations and working fine. I am trying to put up a Netware
6.5 SP3 OES server as another DNS server(currently as a passive primary)
so that I can switch my DNS over to the new server. However, whenever I
load named on the new server, it errors out and says "zone 197.109.207.in-
addr.arpa/in: has no NS records" and "zone 197.109.207.in-addr.arpa/in:
zone is not loaded bad zone". Both servers are serving the same zones.
Does anyone have any ideas about what I might be doing wrong??

Thanks in advance for any help or ideas.

Is there an NS record for the zone? Actually there should be two, one
for each server. There should also be an "A" record in a forward
lookup zone for each of the names listed for the NS records.

Yes, there is a NS record for each server and an A record. The one
server finds them just fine (NW51SP7) but the NW65SP3 server doesn't

Re: Bad dns zone

OK, try installing the DNSDHCP Management Console that ships with
NW65SP3, then use it to delete and recreate your DNS server objects,
then if necesssary, reassign your zones to the servers. You might also
delete and recreate the NS records.

If that doesn't help, try exporting, then reimporting your zones using
the new Management Console.
