IPv6 Glue

Hi there,

I'm unable to pass the Glue check, but I've checked out my DNS records and it does seem to have glue records for my assigned domain controller. The only thing that I would think might be screwing up the test would be that my nameservers reside on a different domain than the one its serving, so that you'd get:

dig mydomain.org NS
mydomain.org.      2518      IN NS        ns88.otherdomain.com.
ns88.otherdomain.com. 83652  IN    AAAA     2001:db8::b00b:cafe


Please provide specific details, obfuscating domain names doesn't help us help you, thanks.


ok  ;D the specific domain is dsc-dsi.org

if I do a dig dsc-dsi.org NS I get:

linux-dm0a:~ # dig dsc-dsi.org NS

; <<>> DiG 9.7.6-P1 <<>> dsc-dsi.org NS

Quotemy nameservers reside on a different domain
That's why you don't have glue records.


Thanks! I finally switched my DNS to my own servers (had been planning on doing that for some time) and sure enough, I had already set up glue records for 'em, so the test passed. Yahoo!  :)
