    When I run dig against my own DNS server, it is showing an older serial number when compared to WHM

    [09:13][root@xxxx:~]# dig SOA +short 2014060821 86400 7200 3600000 86400

    Zone file via WHM:

    Code:      86400   IN      SOA      (
                                                    2014060826 ;Serial Number
                                                    86400 ;refresh
                                                    7200 ;retry
                                                    3600000 ;expire
                                                    86400 ;minimum
    Looking at the zone file (/var/named) for the domain, it has a modify date of 8th of June. Opening it shows the serial number 2014060825.

    Why is there different serials being shown by WHM, the zone file and the dig command? I thought WHM simply read the .db file to populate the form.

    Restarting/reloading named has had no affect.

    Hello :)

    Are you utilizing multiple DNS servers for this domain name? Is the issue isolated to the single domain name, or any domain name hosted on your server?

    Thank you.
