Default Making local Database

Hello,

I am making my own database out of fasta files and need help on how to re-format my command line when creating these databases.

makeblastdb -in test.fasta -dbtype nucl -parse_seqids -out testDB

The file type outputs that I receive currently when I run it is :
testDB.nhr
testDB.nin
testDB.nog
testDB.nsd
testDB.nsi
testDB.nsq

What I need is a .nal file to run blast from the error I am receiving. Now do I get a .nal file when I combine multiple databases? I have run blast on a few files and have a couple of folders with all of them organized into it.
How do I combine databases to get one large one with a _____.nal file type?
