NetSol screwing the pooch?
In trying to track down why an old DNS server dies I found the following interesting stuff for the [a-i].root-servers.net over a two-hour sample period ... Server COM. . a 2000041300 2000041300 b no answer no answer c no answer no answer d answer with ref 2000041300 e 2000041300 2000041300 f 2000041201 2000041300 g 2000041101 2000041101 h answer with ref 2000041101 i 2000041300 2000041300 So I thought the purpose of multiple DNS servers was to have mirroring for redundancy. Does anyone find 1-2 day lags in the updates acceptable? I'm glad NetSol is moving these to commercial grade data centers. :( The no answers are pingable but don't answer queries from here (over a two hour period). The answer with ref answered with referrals to other servers. I don't have the patience to recurse the whole mess of *.gtld-servers.net. Any other observations other than NetSol has apparently screwed the pooch again ?
