    Hi,

    I'm trying to change my Nameserver IP

    Home »Server Configuration »Basic WebHost Manager Setup

    When I click on "Configure Address Records" and try to change the ip under "Confirm the IPv4 address to create an A record" then click "Configure Address Records" in the popup it dosen't change.

    What I'm I doing wrong?

    Thank you

    Hi @Joef

    Can you confirm the DNS zone file for the nameserver is being modified accordingly? You can see these at WHM>>DNS Functions>>Edit DNS Zone

    It may take some time for the system to report the nameserver IP's due to propagation once they're changed.


    Thanks!

    Hi @Joef

    Can you run the following via CLI and let me know the output (please replace any actual IP's or domains)

    Code:
    head -10 /var/named/domain.tld.db
    Code:
    stat /var/named/domain.tld.db

    head: cannot open `/var/named/domain.tld.db' for reading: No such file or directory

    ns1.mydomain.com.db
    ns1.mydomain.com.db
    server.mydomain.com.db

    It's fixed. Looks it was automatically updated or something.

    Thank you
