    Question DNS Migrate from RaQ3/4 to RaQ550

    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.


    Any thoughts greatly appreciated

    From the cobalt list:

    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
    UNSUPPORTED!

    You must have CMU installed on the box for the script to work. You can
    download it at:
    ftp://ftp-eng.cobalt.com/pub/users/j...beta/dnsImport

    usage: ./dnsImport: [records file]

    Report any problems you have to me, please include a copy of the records
    file.
