I have a new slave server. I edited my master, incremented the serial number and reloaded named. The master is fine, and contains the new entry but the slaves are still running the previous entries.

what is the basic operation of updating a slave ?

I reloaded the zone with rndc and the slave pulled the zone. The serial number was incremented on the slave, but the old entry's were still there.
I checked the forward and reverse records, and nothing had changed except the serial number. So I deleted the slave files, and pulled the zone again, and kick started named, everything works fine.
I highly doubt my procedure was the correct way to do it.

can someone explain to me the proper work flow for updating records on slaves ?
