Import DNS from Linux?

Hello,

I am currently running DNS on a Linux box (for the local network) and

want to move the service to a NW6 box. I copied the various named.*
files over and tried to import them, but they are not "BIND" files,
apparently, and the import wants a "bind formatted" file.

How do I create a Bind formatted file for the import process?

Thanks,
Ken

I'd be surprised to see Linux not using BIND formatted DNS files.
More
likely its a BIND version issue that you're facing.

In this case, the simplest thing is probably to setup a dummy DNS zone

on NetWare, create a few records, then export it. The export file
will
be an example of the format you need in order to do an import.

Re: Import DNS from Linux?

Thanks, Brad, I can always use some of that <g>. I was able to figure

out what needed to be added and the import worked. Seems to work ok
now.

Cheers,
Ken
