    * Nameservers and DNS questions - migration

    registrar: enom
    servers: whm

    old setup: registered to registered to

    new server: updated to updated to registered to registered to
    In preparation for a migration of all accounts from one box to a new one, I updated the nameserver ips so that old clients who never bothered to change their nameservers to ns3/ns4 would still see the new server.

    For a few days, this worked. Tonight, out of seemingly nowhere, I am seeing this behavior: shows LINKED and working on but actually going to shows LINKED and working on but actually going to
    ns3/ns4 had NEVER been registered to that address before.

    Does anyone understand what happened and why?

    Make sure the at ns3 and ns4 records are pointing to correct IP addresses in the DNS zone of your domain (your actual domain).

    I SORT of figured it out.

    For whatever reason, browsers, dig, and nslookup were not seeing the registered nameservers and defaulting to looking up HOST records on the In DNS, * was still pointing to Changing * to now makes the ns3/ns4 operate correctly.

    I don't really understand why it happened, but that patch fixed it.
