All my slave zones from Zonedit get the status expired - what can I do?


New Member
all my slave zones get the error when I BIND start:

zone expired
zone expired
all zones loaded
and in the logs of the dns server are these errors:
17-Aug-2021 06:16:15.011 xfer-in: info: zone Transfer started.
17-Aug-2021 06:16:15.160 xfer-in: info: transfer of '' from connected using
17-Aug-2021 06:16:15.310 xfer-in: error: transfer of '' from failed while receiving responses: REFUSED
17-Aug-2021 06:16:15.310 xfer-in: info: transfer of '' from Transfer status: REFUSED
17-Aug-2021 06:16:15.310 xfer-in: info: transfer of '' from Transfer completed: 0 messages, 0 records, 0 bytes, 0.149 secs (0 bytes/sec) (serial 2604576240)
My zone files in ../named/slave are not updated.
I have in named.conf the zone configured like this:
// (master) + web-06
// The following name-servers can be used with this domain (2021)
zone "" {
type slave;
file "slave/wasmuss_de.bk";
masterfile-format text;
masters {;;
allow-transfer {;; };
//HL-210717 notify no;
allow-notify {; };
allow-query { any; };
What do I'm wrong - or what is wrong? How can I fixed it that the slave zone files will be updated from your master again?

I would highly recommend visiting the "Integrations" tab when you have your domain loaded in the control panel and check out the Zone Transfers page.

There is a note on the page which says:

Have your third party nameservers slave from:

Also, the "Allow Zone Transfers" box is filled in with an IP address that is not

Those are the two discrepancies that I can see at the moment.

Thanks for an answer, but where can I find the "Integrations" tab in the control panel?
Update: I have found it!
In "Allow Zone Transfers" is my old server ip - I will correct this and see if it helps

To set the correct IP address hasn't help.

In the control panel at NS Records I have defined:
(my server as slave)
Was this wrong?

If I look in Domain > Mangage > [DNS Settings] primary NS
There is no primary DNS server defined: "No primary name server specified." ???
Should I write there?

Those are the correct Zoneedit Nameservers to be using.

If you want Zoneedit to be Secondary, then yes, you would need to configure the "primary NS" section in the Domain Settings area. Add your primary server and make sure to add our IP to the ACL so it can receive the transfers and notifies.
