Hi,

I am about to replace 2 unix DNS servers with W2K3 DNS servers.
On the Unix I have zone files for 1200 zones and need to get these zones and
hosts etc into the windows DNS servers.
Has anyone any tips on how to quickly and easily create the windows zones
and populate them.?

Thanks,

GJB

If you have that many zones, you may want to invest in a 3rd party tool.

Check out the sample scripts:

You'll have to figure out how to export your zone data into a comfortable
syntax.

and what about using a batch file with DNSCMD.EXE to all the needed
actions. You can create the batch with excel
