Strange behaviour of ns3.dreamhost.com


#1

Hi

I was updating DNS records yesterday to move my web hosting over to Azure. In other words:

  • I changed my webhosting on dreamhost to DNS only
  • I updated the DNS record to point the A record to a new IP address
  • I changed the www record to a CNAME record point to my azure website
  • I also added some other awverify CNAME stuff expected by azure

All this seemed to propogate okay overnight except for one really strange thing…

The ns3.dreamhost.com nameserver is still reporting the old ip address for some reason. My question obviously is, should this be happening? Did I perhaps do something wrong? Or is it a problem on dreamhost’s end?

It’s a dreamhost problem. Open a ticket.

this particular dreamhost problem doesn’t get a lot of attention, but it happens alot.
