where are nameservers for dns kept?

When I hit "Perform a DNS Cleanup", it set all of my dns records back with old NS records pointing to the old name servers... which no longer exist. The new ones are set under "Edit Setup" in WHM, but obviously the old ones are kept somewhere... any hints?

I think that did it!

Now, I have a much bigger problem... ever since I moved to cPanel, my DNS has been running <i>very</i> slowly... sometimes failing altogether. But, without doing anything to the server, if I wait a bit longer, it comes up... Any ideas as to what to look for?

Thanks again for your help!

Check your /etc/resolv.conf file. Make sure the information is correct.

Thanks for the reply... /etc/resolve.conf looks fine to me. I have 127.0.0.1 first, followed by the IPs of two other name servers. I expect this would be normal?

Thanks again for any help!
