BUG: Zone transfer at xfr0.zoneedit.com stuck at old SOA serial. Slave zones cannot be updated.

Hi,
I have performed some additions to my zone file vlsi.gr but these changes are not propagated to the zoneedit transfer server, and thus my slave nameservers still are using the old zone.

I can check the serial of the dns0.zoneedit.com which is the last updated zone with nslookup

> set type=soa
> vlsi.gr
Server: dns1.zoneedit.com
Address: 45.77.82.193#53

vlsi.gr
origin = dns0.zoneedit.com
mail addr = zone.zoneedit.com
serial = 1580192094
refresh = 3600
retry = 600
expire = 604800
minimum = 300
>

and it is 1580192094

but when I am transferring the zone I always got the old zone with old serial 1574683600

check the log messages of the bind:

Jan 29 23:44:49 bigb5 named[87682]: zone vlsi.gr/IN: transferred serial 1574683600
Jan 29 23:44:49 bigb5 named[87682]: transfer of 'vlsi.gr/IN' from 64.68.198.91#53: Transfer status: suc
cess
Jan 29 23:44:49 bigb5 named[87682]: transfer of 'vlsi.gr/IN' from 64.68.198.91#53: Transfer completed:
1 messages, 107 records, 3200 bytes, 0.140 secs (22857 bytes/sec)



I can also verify that the zone transfer server of zoneedit.com carries the old soa. Look :

dig @xfr0.zoneedit.com vlsi.gr -t axfr
; <<>> DiG 9.14.9 <<>> @xfr0.zoneedit.com vlsi.gr -t axfr
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
vlsi.gr. 3600 IN SOA dns0.zoneedit.com. zone.zoneedit.com. 1574683600 3600 600 604800 300





So you have to un-stuc/un-hang the zone transfer from dns0.zoneedit.com to xfr0.zoneedit.com in order for the changed to propagate to other slave server.


Thanks in advance

Code:
: transfer of 'vlsi.gr/IN' from 64.68.198.91#53: connected using 62.217.127.198#56020
: zone vlsi.gr/IN: transferred serial 1574683600
: transfer of 'vlsi.gr/IN' from 64.68.198.91#53: Transfer status: success

I am still transferring the old serial 1574683600
I am using the 64.68.198.91 as indicated by the text printed /manage/domains/zone_transfers.php

Ok, thank you for testing that. Our admins will be looking into the core issue.

I saw chatter of a fix going through on the weekend, can you check if the issue still persists? I reloaded your zone so the SOA should now be 1580827338

The issue is fixed. The serial 1580827338 is active on all nameservers, even on google's

# nslookup -query=soa vlsi.gr 8.8.8.8
Server: 8.8.8.8
Address: 8.8.8.8#53

Non-authoritative answer:
vlsi.gr
origin = dns0.zoneedit.com
mail addr = zone.zoneedit.com
serial = 1580827338
refresh = 3600
retry = 600
expire = 604800


Thanks!
