    In ML server, the DHCP and DNS management section are extremely minimal and make it very hard to manage a large number of records.


    Hopefully, something better will come along...

    ok, my hardware apple raid card failed and i had to reinstall os x server.. apparently obliged to upgrade to 10.8


    Apart the frustration of the permission manager (apple what are you thinking?!?!), the certificate manager (still need to figure out how to import my wildcard certificate) and the workgroup manager that doesnt import correctly the groups (more than 30 groups) i would like at least to import the service settings of the DNS and Sites, so i've tried to import all the settings with:


    ./serveradmin settings < dns.plist

    ./serveradmin settings < web.plist



    that was previously exported with serveradmin 10.6..  but nothing shows up in the, has anybody been successful in exporting/importing the serveradmin service preferences?


    the export / import functionality is not even available from the GUI, i would really like to meet the guy that made this decision!
