Hello, I noticed kind of annoying behavior when enabling IPv6 for an account. I have a few entries in my dns zone with AAAA pointing to another servers, when I enable IPv6 it overwrites those entries with the new IPv6.

Maybe there should be an option not to overwrite old AAAA entries?

Hello :)

There is an internal case open to address this issue. For reference, the case number is 80657. While it's noted in the case that this is currently by design, there is discussion on how to best modify this behavior in the future to ensure a smooth transition to IPv6.

Thank you.
