Given that, in their infinate wisdom, Sun have done away with the nice, tidy DNS implementation they had on the R3/4 using the /etc/named/records file as the central 'datastore' for DNS records, alowing seemless and simple transfers from box to box, I find myself searching for a new method, of importing ALL the DNS from one of my R4's to one of my R550's
Has anyone come accross a simple bulk transfer method, or even a NOT so SIMPLE method, any method which works, and doesnt involve typeing in every record from scratch.
I created a utility to import the /etc/named/records file to a RaQ550
for DNS record migration. I tested it with a records file from a RaQ 4,
I have not yet used one from a RaQ2, RaQ3, or RaQXTR. I am hoping since
the format did change that much over the product lines it will work with
those as well. If you are going to use this with CMU I would suggest
first turning off Automatic DNS Configuration under the Site Management
=> Edit Virtual Site Template. It should import all a, cname, mx, ptr,
forwarders, zone transfer access, and soa records.
USE THIS UTILITY AT YOUR OWN RISK! IT IS COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY
