When I export a workflow in WFA 2.1, it's being saved as a .zip file. When I try to import the workflow, the only file type that can be imported is a .dar file. What am I missing?

Are you using IE?
Can you please try it on some other browser..!!
I have seen this happen on some of the newer version of Internet Explorer. By default it seems that some versions of IE will save the files in a zip format.
Try to change the file type to .DAR instead or use a different browser like Firefox or Chrome.
I have not found the right 'option' to disable to prevent this type of error.

This is well documented in 2.1 Release Notes. This issue would arise with some IE versions..!
So, the workarounds would be,
Okay found how to fix it. Verified with IE10 and its working great for me.
3. Restart your "NetApp WFA Server" Service.
4. Once its up, open WFA server with the same Internet Explorer browser where you were facing the problem and you'll see that now when you export, it will prompt to save exports as .dar and not .zip
Let me know how this worked for you.
Thanks to all who replied. Simply changing the file ending from .zip to .dar worked.
