Hey Guys,

We are going to be doing some emergency IP re-numbering on Saturday night and I need to know what files I have to update with new IPs for my current clients

I know I have to update the bind zone files, and httpd.conf but I am not sure about mail, ftp and cpanel specific files.

I really need your help so any ideas would be great. We are running RedHat 7.1 if that is helpful

Also by changing the system IP, will that update all of the info for our current name-based hosting clients, or will it need to be done manually???

Thanks

You will also need to change the proftpd.conf and you will i know for a fact need to contact your cpanel distro. to change the IP for your lience..

I believe you will need to do the changes manually.... don't hold me to that though..

cbingham,

Very important, I just found out, you need also to change IPs in /etc/domainips !!!

I'm going through the same thing here except getting support from my provider is like pulling teeth from a Velociraptor.

Well if anyone needs any help... let me know... I can explain how it worked for us :)[/quote:003f80838b]


Please let me know how you did this.

I modified: httpd.conf, proftpd.conf, edited their zone, and edited /etc/domainips

Still, If I ping their domain it try's their old IP. any ideas

Well I did exactly what you said you did, but I just want to make sure you did a couple of things, simple yet easily overlooked.

1) Did you restart named?
2) The IP addresses for your Name Server, did they change as well?
3) Did you have a back up name server
4) If so did you update the IPs on there as well?
5) Sometimes u won't see the changes until 3 or 4 hours later depending on the setup so just wait a little while\...

Hi,

Thanks for the prompt reply

I did restart BIND (named) proftp, httpd, etc. Also, no I did not change any name servers, just an account.

I shall wait and see how it goes. WHM LIST account feature shows the IP I changed it to, so i am hoping i did it right.

thanks
