IP migration wizard - why doesn't it update the zone file serials and reload bind?

    I've just run the IP migration wizard on about 100 sites over 10 IP addresses, and it's set Apache up fine, but for some ungodly reason it updated the IPs in the zone files, but never updated the serials and reloaded them? My DNS is set up in a cluster, and this machine I've done all this on isn't the cluster root, is that what's gone wrong? You have to be the cluster root?

    What's more, how the hell do you force the local DNS to reload its zones? I've never experienced behaviour like this before, I went through and updated the serials in every .db file in /var/named, and reloaded bind - and nothing. digging at localhost still contains the old records. what the hell is going on? cpanel dns is frigging insane and makes no sense sometimes. I've tried the "sync dns" stuff in WHM, it doesn't do a goddamn thing either, is there a button that says "just make the dns work properly like you would normally think"? As things stand right now, the only way I can get WHM to correctly reload the zone is to edit it in WHM, one by one - I don't have to change anything, just click save, but even that is a ridiculous overkill for something that is meant to just work.

    Find any solution to this?

    I have had a IP migration as well, also using DNS clusters.

    Now all the right IP's are in the DNS records on only 1 nameserver. All the other serversin the culster aren't update.

    Regretfully I cannot sync the DNS records, cause the serial isn't updated. It's a real mess.

    I have 350 domains to update, by hand it will take ages.

    If someone has a great tip how to get the serial updated for the records on the sevrer that had the IP migration, I would be very happy. After that I can sync the DNS records, and all clsutered servers will eb updated.
