hey all, i don't know if this is the right place to ask this but here goes, i have a raq3 server that's doing all of my dns. I have over 600 domain records in that dns and what i need to do is get some sort of text file with a list of all the domain names and the records and the ip they point to. The reason: i'm moving all my stuff to windows dns. I know nothing about linux or raq3. Please help me out. thanx all.

Well you can sync the dns record to you win2K server and create the list. anyway, the files your look for is /var/named/xxxx.db or /var/named/db.xxxx  the files name you can check in here /etc/named.conf in this config file you will find something as below

[root@dns /etc]# more named.conf
options {
        directory "/var/named";
        };

zone "." {
        type hint;
        file "/var/named/named.ca";
};
zone "nikoyo.com.cn"{
        type master;
        file "/var/named/db.yourdomain.com";                  <here show you the file you need to look for, in this example is db.yourdomain.com
};
zone "0.0.127.IN-ADDR.ARPA"{
        type master;
        file "/var/named/named.local";
};
zone "0.168.192.in-addr.arpa"{
        type master;
        file "/var/named/db.192.168.0";                            <and also here
};

is this what you are looking for ?

you can copy those files into a floppy and open them by note pad/M$ words will do.

put a formatted floppy (even dos format should work) into your linux box, mount /dev/floppy /mnt/floppy
login into your linux box as root, run "cp /var/named/(the file you need) /mnt/floppy" in the console mode/command mode, now you copy your file(s) into the floppy so you can open it from M$ windoz and work out, normally the file should not over 1.44MB, if yes, try using tar and compress it into smaller size

tar -zcvf /mnt/floppy/(needfile).tar.gz /var/named/(needfile)   this will make a compressed file into you floppy, you can open it by using winzip or RAR.

Hope this can help.

Have you considered using Bind on Windows?  For 300 domains, Windows DNS could prove to be a nightmare!  If you don't know the Linux OS, only a few changes would need to be made to the named.conf configuration file (due to the / in linux vs. the c:\ in windows) to get it running.

Hope this helps.
