    I need help with BIND and nameservers.


    I recently changed my IP address, so I redid the zones file in BIND to match the new one and everything. But my domain's registrar's website would NOT let me change my nameservers on it, so I probably did the wrong thing, but I deleted as many glue records I made on the website (dyndns.com) and made new ones, set new nameservers, and kind of substituted the new for the old in my BIND files.

    I've heard somewhere theres some sort of Time to live thing, so does this mean that I may have it configured correctly, but I won't be able to tell for a while? How long is that?

    and, most importantly, is this configured correctly:
    On the dyndns website (im textually representing what I have put):
    Code:
    NAMESERVERS:
    name1.nerdycast.org
    name2.nerdycast.org
    
    GLUE RECORDS:
    name1.nerdycast.org
              68.201.42.100
    name2.nerdycast.org
              68.201.42.100
    (2 glue records they aren't letting me delete with the old one)
    BIND FILES:
    named.conf


    db.nerdycast.org.txt

    Thank you so much.

    What happens when you try to change IP's at the domain registrar for the nameservers? Many registrars have the domains locked to prevent unauthorized transfers. You may need to unlock the domain first, then change nameserver info and then relock the domain.

    Can you post your zone file as well.

    well, unlocking it did not seem to fix the problem, when I try to delete the old ones it will say
    "Glue record smp.nerdycast.org cannot be deleted"

    or if I'm changing the ip it will say

    "Cannot update IP for smp.nerdycast.org. Please try again later."

    named.local (is this what you were looking for)

    When changing the IP at the registrar, after unlocking, you may need to wait a few minutes. How many nameservers do you have listed at the registrar?

    Look for a domain that ends with .zone (nerdycast.zone). That's the file I wanted to take a look at.

    I do not see any .zones file in C:\windows\syswow64\dns

    at this point, the problem is that
    smp.nerdycast.org
    and
    voip.nerdycast.org

    work, but
    www doesn't

    ive toyed with it more.......
    this is what ive come up with
    named.conf

    named.local

    db.nerdycast.org.txt

    I made a new zone file since the other was mysteriously nonexistant. This goes in the zones folder not the etc folder?

    nerdycast.zone

    Sorry... I assumed you were using a flavor of Linux as opposed to Windows.

    db.nerdycast.org.txt and your configuration looks good. All that's left is that you need to somehow get your registrar to allow you to switch nameserver IP's. Who is your domain registrar?

    Right now, everything still shows as: 68.201.46.156 which I'm assuming is your old IP.
