    Hi!
    Recently I'm finding some issues with DNS and AWS.
    At the beginning when I changed the domain name and set the glue records and dns settings I was able to create A records, MX records, TXT records, etc.
    But now I find very weird that any attempt to create any other new record is not taken into account.
    Bind seem to work properly (otherwise) DNS would not work but DNS propagation for new records don't.

    This is a first with EC2, I'm using another hosting companies for over a year now with no issues.

    Is there a knowledge base with issues on AWS?
    Have you experienced this before?
    Any suggestion that I should take into account?

    Thanks in advance.

    On a closer look, new changes are not been recorded.

    $ dig @11.22.33.44 A dev.domain.ltd

    ; <<>> DiG 9.10.3-P4-Ubuntu <<>> @11.22.33.44 A dev.domain.ltd
    ; (1 server found)

    So my guess is it's a local issue.
    Interesting...

    Sorry guys! I found the issue.
    I had a bad record that's the reason the changes weren't been applied. They remained as a .err file.

    Now it's working fine. Thanks!
