    Is there some way I can force plesk to format the Bind/DNS Serial Number format to YYYYMMDD## (which is used by many people as an unwritten standard).

    I have problems transferring existing domains to plesk as the plesk generated serial number is much lower than the old serial numbers which was in the format YYYYMMDD##

    Please help!

    Actually you can solve your issue by clearing slave DNS zone entries to let master update slave from scratch. If you're using MS DNS then backup files from c:\windows\system32\dns\ and remove c:\windows\system32\dns\*.dns files related to secondary zones. If you're using BIND then backup all files from %path_to_bind%\var\ and remove files related to secondary zones. Possible it will solve your issue.
