ISPConfig - Name Server Config

    Hi Gang,

    I've installed an ISPConfig server using the perfect setup with CentOS 5.6 few weeks ago. One of my resellers has started to migrate some of his sites from my old box to the new one.

    All his domains are registered with "domainatcost". He transferred the web site code and databases from box to box, then changed the name servers to point to the new environment. Everything worked for ± 10 domains but not for two CA domains (one of the 2 is "ebsf40.ca").

    We tried to get support from domainatcost’s staff but we have been told that "the name servers provided are not valid nameservers". This is mind bugling since it worked for a bunch domains now.

    How can I check my environment ? Should I register my name server somewhere ? The box’s name is “ns1.khameleo.ca” (IP= 69.70.100.146). Let me know if you need any configuration file.

    Thanks,

    I see that your nameservers run on the same IP - some registrars might refuse to accept that. Maybe this is against the policies for .ca domains?

    Thanks Falko,

    This may be possible, I will check. Beside, the one IP setup is temporary until all the sites are moved from the old box to the new (then, I will turn the old box into my second separate name server).

    Maybe I could manage to get the old box to run ISPConfig with its BIND and accept the zone file from my new ISPConfig server as a secondary name server. Can you lead me to instruction to perform that if it's feasible. I know DynDNS offers that service (secondary DNS) for more or less $40 a year (perhaps that could be a plan to get my second name server for the domains I manage).

    Yes, I'm on ISPConfig 2 (± 50 domains / sites). Thanks a lot. I will read for sure...
