    I had some techs switching to a new master server yesterday, for servers in a trust relationship, but just discovered that the zone information is incomplete for the dns zones. :( For example, the mail, ftp, www, localhost.domain.com CNAME, A, MX and NS record lines are missing in the zones.

    The old master server is still online so it still hasn't propagate to the new machine.

    Is there any way to restore or transfer the dns zones from the old master server after the switch has already taken place, so so that they contain the correct information?

    Thanks
    John

    Login via shell and cd to /var/named. Make sure the files are owned by the correct id/group. This will fix the problem.
