DID I need to add my datacenters ns in here someplace? or do I just need to wait for the changes to propogate as everything seems to be setup right? I had A records at my old host pointing over to the new host, but something musta went wrong and its been down for a day. No worries however its just for me and my friends :D

Did you make a backup of your resolv.conf before you edited it?
Your datacenter should have provided the proper entrys for that for you.

Your current dns is resolving to your old host still. You would need to
update your registrars private name server IP's as well.

Your NS records at the parent servers are:

ns1.acidhosts.com. [72.36.193.82] [TTL=172800] [US]
ns2.acidhosts.com. [72.36.193.83] [TTL=172800] [US]

I will assume that having my resolv.conf pointing back to my nameservers is not going to be something that works. They have taken access to my old server already and it appears that these records are still hanging in there.

ns1.layeredtech.com - 216.39.90.2
ns2.layeredtech.com - 216.39.90.3

Can be used for local forward DNS servers.


is something I found on there forums. Should these be the entries I have in the resolv.conf?

I EDITED MY RESOLV.CONF TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE

72.36.190.2
216.39.90.2
72.36.191.2
216.39.90.3

and then restarted my named, I will just wait now and let it do its thing?

Yes that would work provided those servers have A records for your box.
You should contact the DC and ask what you should use.

dns report still shows your old ns A records. Did you update your registrar
to your new box's NS A addresses?

you also need to fix this

ERROR: One or more of your nameservers reports that it is an open DNS server. This usually means that anyone in the world can query it for domains it is not authoritative for (it is possible that the DNS server advertises that it does recursive lookups when it does not, but that shouldn't happen).
