    You have to set the database field status to 'u' in the zones where you modified the ttl.

    Thanks but I think that this is not the solution to my problem: (

    I think I have omitted some important information:
    1. The two servers are not master / slave but a standalone
    2. each server has its DNS services, mail, web ect ...
    3. I think the sync tools you suggested are not suitable to my problem, most are not even present in the ispconfig installation directory on the servers.

    ispconfig version is

    many thanks for your patience: D

    This was the solution :)

    1) Good to know. But for this makes no difference for the sync tools.
    2+3) The dns sync tools are suitable and will work for your problem.

    I performed these steps:

    1. downloaded ispconfig via svn , copied the files as you suggested in the post

    2. logout and re-login ispconfig panel, appeared the new entry under "tools"

    3. using PHPMyAdmin I've changed the values ​​of ttl running "update dns_soa set ttl = 28800 where ttl = 3600" on the ispconfig db

    4. I've run the Resync menu and....

    ..after a few seconds the bind zones files have been changed correctly :D

    Many thanks for your help and many compliments for the wonderful job you did with ispconfig!
