This appendix covers the steps necessary to convert a BIND Version 4 name server to a Microsoft DNS Server. This process is straightforward, since the Microsoft DNS Server can read a BIND Version 4-style configuration file to obtain its configuration. If you're running BIND Version 8 or 9, you're no doubt aware that the configuration file format is drastically different. Unfortunately, the Microsoft DNS Server can't read this version of the BIND configuration file. You should still read through this appendix to see what's involved in the conversion, but you'll need to manually "downgrade" your BIND configuration file to a format readable by the Microsoft DNS Server.
