    Changed IPs on one of the nameservers. What is the best way to change the IP on all the zone files? (there is a lot of them and multiple name servers)

    If you wish to change the IP in all zone files, below is something you can try. If you are unsure if this is the solution to your question, do contact your web host OR system admin.

    This will replace the old with new IP in all zone files. Restart DNS/named on the server.

    Do you need to change the time format on them too so the changes are pushed to the other name servers?

    No, once you change the IP's and restart DNS service it will reflect in couple of hours worldwide. Yes, you will have to point the name server to new IP at registrar's end as well.

    Hello :)

    The best way to change the IP address for multiple accounts is to use:

    "WHM >> IP Functions >> IP Migration Wizard"

    This is documented at:

    IP Migration Wizard

    Thank you.

    Don't think that works exactly for my case. Will use the replace CL and restart named.
