    Hi
    I need to remove all know DNS Zones on my 'DNS Only' server as they have become out of sync with a new cPanel server.
    Any ideas how I can remove/purge all zones?

    Thanks
    Rob

    Try the following on the command prompt:

    for i in `ls -la /var/named/*.db | sed s'/\.db//g' | awk '{print $9}' | cut -d/ -f4`do /scripts/killdns $i done;

    Thanks, I tried that but end up with a '>' prompt and nothing happens.
    I have to press 'ctrl + c' to return to and normal 'root@ns2 [~]#' prompt.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    Ok, do one thing, execute each line as I gave you and hit enter

    You will see a '>' sign once you type the first 'for..' line and hit enter, but continue to execute the commands as given above.
