    My NS2 has a wrong IP in DNS report.... HELP!


    After running a DNS test and I received a weird error message that one of my NS servers is offline. The cause seems to be a wrong IP address for NS2 but I'm not sure WHO/WHERe this IP address is provided.

    Got DNS list for 'mydomain.org' from A2.ORG.AFILIAS-NST.INFO
    Found NS record: ns1.mydomain.org[10.0.0.179], was resolved to IP address by A2.ORG.AFILIAS-NST.INFO
    Found NS record: ns2.mydomain.org[10.0.0.180], was resolved to IP address by A2.ORG.AFILIAS-NST.INFO
    Domain has 2 DNS server(s)

    CheckDNS.NET is verifying if NS are alive
    DNS server ns1.mydomain.org[10.0.0.179] is alive and authoritative for domain mydomain.org
    Error fetching SOA from ns2.mydomain.org [10.0.0.180], request timed out. Probably DNS server is offline.
    1 server(s) are alive
    DNS server ns2.mydomain.org failed and will be dropped from other tests

    OK, 10.x.x.x is a private address range so my first question is are you using private or public IP Addresses for your DNS servers?

    If you are using private address space then take a look at your resolv.conf file.
    If you are using public address space then check your Register setup.

    I'm hiding my real IP addresses which are public IP's.
    Domain registrar's accept only TLD, which in my case are both correct -- ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com

    DNS reports wrong IP address for my ns2.
    Any other suggestions what/where might be wrong?

    "You have to make sure your parent server has the same NS records for your zone as you do."

    How do I make sure that parent servers have the same NS records?

    Hidding things doesn't make troubleshooting easier.
    If you like, PM me your domain so that I can take a look myself.
    Until I can see what is being presented I'm not going to troubleshoot in the dark.
    I've had enough troubleshooting where the client tells you one thing and not giving the correct/complete information.
