    Hi

    I have two name servers
    * ns1.fulopp.org 216.237.127.250
    * ns2.fulopp.org 216.237.127.251

    Everything worked fine until now - ns2.fulopp.org is down somehow, I cannot ping it anymore.

    Looked over all settings in WHM and everything looks fine - any ideas? This is weird! I did not do any changes to the basic functionality lately, just adding some accounts, etc, also adding IPs (but not deleting any, and not touching the above ones).

    Please - anybody has any ideas as to what might be happening?

    Well,

    You can certainly restartt bind, but dnsreport indicates that you have no NS A records created. So, you may want to check your zone for fullop.org and ensure that it is correct rpior to a restart.

    Yes, I did restart named.

    Thanks for the comment on the zone. However - I am not sure what to do in order to get the ns2 running (*.251). See attached screenshot of the DNS edit for fulopp.org. What precisely should I do?

    Thanks a million!!

    edit the zone for fullop and add A entries as follows:

    ns1 172800 IN A <ip.addy.for.ns1>
    ns2 172800 IN A <ip.addy.for.ns2>


    save, bind should auto reload, wait a little while and see what happens then!
