    Hello

    Today After moving many websites from server to another , I faced a problem in dns zone in ipv6 records, all records copied from the old server and the records AAA become incorrect for all zones.

    I have about 150 domains which have the same problem so the reset option in whm interface let me rest domains one by one .. no bulk option to reset all domains and that need too much effort and time.

    I searched in the forum for a solution but there are some limitation on the suggested solutions for example some of them don't bring sub-domains and add on domains into zone.


    finally I created my solution by whm api command line

    to reset all domains zones include sub-domains and add-on domains just simply apply this code

    Code:
    for i in `cat /etc/trueuserdomains | cut -d: -f1` ;do whmapi1 resetzone domain=$i ;done
    best regards

    Hello @amin alnasra,

    I'm happy to see you were able to find a suitable workaround. Note that internal case CPANEL-6541 is open to ensure the Transfer Tool overwrites or removes IPv6 addresses from the DNS zone when applicable. This is planned in a future cPanel & WHM version, but we do not have a time frame to offer at this time. I'll update this thread with new information as it becomes available.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    To update, it looks like an improvement stemming from internal case CPANEL-6541 is scheduled for inclusion with the product in cPanel & WHM version 74. Here's some information about the planned improvement:

    Thank you.

    Update: The case was also published to version 72.0.12:

    • Fixed case CPANEL-6541: Implemented swap IPv6 for transfers, dedicated IPv6 not handled.
