If you want to check your zones, you can use "dig @localhost DOMAINTOCHECK
AXFR" for a local zone transfer from the dns server itself. Or from another
server "dig @yourdnsserver domainname. Or from a windows server the command
"nslookup", then in the nslookup query add your dns server as source like
this: "server yourdnsserver" then your can check the domains by just typing
them in.

What exactly you want to check Gary?
