I said I'd report back on if the zone forwarding functionality built into
the NW6.5 SP6 DNS services will work on SP5, and I finally got round to
testing it today.

The answer is, unfortunately, 'no'.

I've copied NAMED/NLM from SP6 to my Sp5 server, and upgrade iManager to
v2.5 so zone forwarding can be configured, but whenever I try to create a
forwarding zone I get this message:

"Edirectory interaction failure: Create DNS zone failed".

Sounds like a mismatch between SP5 and SP6 nlm, api's and all that. It might
work if other DNS service nlms from SP6 were copied over too, but I've no
idea which nlms they would be. Any ideas?
