DNS Problems!!!

Nice timing guys. (Not you guys. Them guys. At the ISP.) The internet connection to the (old) MuNu nameserver has gone down. Either that, or the router has failed. Of course, I can't contact anyone to find out.

Whichever, the nameserver is not contactable. I've now set up the MuNu webserver as the primary MuNu nameserver. That means that if one part goes, it all goes. But at least one part can't break the other parts...

It seems to be working now, but with DNS there's always a time delay as problems appear and are fixed. This is because your local DNS server will keep a copy of things, and use that copy if there is a problem with the originating server.


The other problem is that I can't fix, because it's not part of Jim - if you can point to as your primary, and leave to old secondary as it is, I'll get that fixed for you.

Update: Damn! This has shut down the domain as well, so I'm not getting email. That'll teach me not to put both my nameservers on the same network. Pfft. I'm going to go in and see if I can fix the problem now.

More Update: It's the internet connection. I've opened a support ticket, but I don't know when it might get fixed. They're normally pretty good on support, but this is not the best time of year for problems like this.

Let me know if you need the flamethrower recharged--I'm a great "tool-holdin' woman." Hmm...that sounds like something Victor or Ted is going to make a risque remark about! But when things need fixed, and I have a guy to fix 'em, I fetch the screwdrivers and hold the wrenches til needed...

I might just be FUBAR then. I get this message when I try to change the DNS entry:
Unable to add nameservers: Command failed: unable to verify existence of nameserver

Damn! Try It might require a domain name instead of an IP.
