DNS record is missing for DSfW zone

Missing a system created DNS record for a DSfW zone/domain

Missing one of the following records:


The system created records should be located in /var/opt/novell/xad/ds/dns/RR/ directory

All of the resource records should be there in an ldif file.  Find the file and do a ldapmodify to create the record.

Example for a missing _kpasswd._tcp.ldif

export LDAPCONF=/etc/opt/novell/xad/openldap/ldap.conf

/usr/bin/ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -f /var/opt/novell/xad/ds/dns/RR/_kpasswd._tcp.ldif

The record should now be created in eDirectory.  Restart novell-named or wait up to 15 minutes for the record to be synced to the bind database on the DNS server(s).
