I'm trying to migrate my DNS from Solaris to OES2 novell-named so I can take advantage of some of the eDirectory features. I have set up my OES2 as a secondary to the Solaris machine hoping that it will pull down the zones automatically. The zone files have been pulled down, but they are in the /var/lib/named/master/ directory where I expect the straight named config files to be, not in the /etc/opt/novell/named directory with the novell-named config files where I expect them to be. Does the novell-named service use the zone files in /var/lib/named/master/? If so, why does it only show one zone when novell-named starts instead of the 15 or 16 that I expect it to?

I tried to use the iManager zone import tool to import the zone files, but it chokes on the Solaris files. If there is another way to do that, please let me know.
