Hi,
I'd like to tranfer my dns zone files from the linux sever to windows server. I have copied the files from the var/named and  I have copied on the win. srv in c:\windows\system32\dns.
I have also created a key in the registry for the specified cone. On the win. srv I had restart the DNS server service... The new cone appers in the DNS console, but it doesnt work properly. I think that there is a compatibility issue between linux dns zone files and windows. Does anybody have any idea?
thank you.

Personally I would set windows up to be a secondary DNS for that zone so that it copies all the data by using a zone transfer. Once the zone is transferred you should be able to change it to the primary.
