    I recently inherited 2 servers, setup and working. Let's call it Well, server X uses and, and server Y uses and In the DNS zone for, I have: 3600 NS 3600 NS

    Then I also have

    ns1 3600 A <IP addr>
    ns2 3600 A <IP addr>
    ns3 3600 A <IP addr>
    ns4 3600 A <IP addr>

    It seems curious that there are no 'NS' records for and

    OK, for the most part all works well. However, since upgrading the hard drive on server X, some users are reporting failed DNS lookups from certain ISP's (not from all, and not from any ISP I can reproduce the problem with). This thread suggested adding 'A' records for ns1 and ns2:

    Interestingly, the 'A' records are already there, but the 'NS' records are not.

    Any ideas? Should I add NS records for ns1 and ns2? Will that mess anything up?

    Thanks for any assistance. Support Ticket Number: Support Ticket Number:
