My Primary Server is down for some reason its been down for a while and all along we have been using a backup server which has a secondary DNS. now the zone on the secondary dns has expired i think coz it cant pull any records from the primary server which is not there, and it has been shut down. how can i get it back up?

yes. it looks like i have fixed it. i deleted the zone and all its data files in the dns folder then recreated it as a primary zone. now its working. but was there anything i could ave done? i thought there could be a way to reactivate the expired zone.

No, i dont think u can reactivate expired zones.
But if u would have changed the secondary to primary before the expiry interval, the situation could have been avoided
