Changed Nameserver IPs, "authoritative nameservers" report old ones

    I have recently attempted to get rid of my two nameservers on two different boxes and temporarily set them both up on one box.

    This has involved changing both the IP addresses of the nameservers to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. Doing a dnsreport.com shows this error:

    ns2.xxxxxxxxx.biz.:
    Parent server (h.gtld.biz) says A record is (new ip of ns2), but
    authoritative DNS server (new ip of ns1) says it is (old ip of ns2)
    ns1.xxxxxxxxx.biz.: Parent server (h.gtld.biz) says A record is (old ip of ns2), but
    authoritative DNS server (new ip of ns1) says it is (old ip of ns1)
    ns1.xxxxxxxxx.biz.:
    Parent server (h.gtld.biz) says A record is (old ip of ns1), but
    authoritative DNS server (new ip of ns2) says it is (old ip of ns1)
    ns2.xxxxxxxxx.biz.:
    Parent server (h.gtld.biz) says A record is (old ip of ns2), but
    authoritative DNS server (new ip of ns2) says it is (old ip of ns2)


    The server was clustered with the other three during transitition and is right now. I removed the nameservers on the other two boxes though. Why would my new nameservers be reporting the old ones?

    Check the domain's db file in /var/named on all the servers that are still active. No matter how many times I've changed the nameserver IP numbers in the various WHM screens, I still always have to manually change them in the db files. Maybe I'm supposed to, and I've just been too dimwitted to realize it. Won't hurt for you to check, though.

    Good luck!
