    The reason I ask, is that we're migrating a box from one IP to another, and the domain name for the new box remains the same as that of the old one.

    The registrar records have been updated consequently, however, when trying to assign a given NS an IP address through the "Edit Setup" section of WHM, it reports something to the effect of: "Sorry, this IP address is already assigned to <old ip here>".

    I've added entries to the "etc/hosts" file, and while these do make lynx and such target the proper domain, WHM insists on retrieving records which contain the old address. Which means are then used? dig?

    Thank you!
