Dns


I have a Linux DNS server and I want to move it to another server.
OS is the same on both, RedHat 7.1.
Just wondering if anyone knows which file(s) can be moved to make it work, or is it like the MS world where the whole thing has to be restored?

the nameserver setup is stored in the following files (assuming its a BIND-NS in default setup)

/etc/named.conf
/var/named/* (the whole directory)

If you move those files, you should be up and running quickly again.

I am assuming then that they would just get copied into the same directories on the new machine?
Will they fit on a floppy? Or is that dependant on the setup?

Ok, I know I am rambling here but does Linux have its own backup utility? Maybe I should post that in a new post.

Since they are all just text-files, they should fit onto a floppy easily. And yes, you just copy them into the same directories. Apply any changes to the ip-addresses that may have occured and you are all set!
