I doubt it was planned with it being a Tuesday lunchtime. They usually do planned stuff in the middle of the night.

No it seems nominet do nothing. I thought anything you entered at nominet showed in Whois. However they say if ns1.abc changed its nameservers to ns1.mnb etc it would show up on the Whois and it's beyond their control.

aaclapham is on a distinguished road

I thought I had been hacked and changed all my name servers back.

Quote:
Due to an administrative error, domains that met the following conditions:

1.) Are not registered on our nominet tag – KRYSTAL
2.) Were pointing at ns1.krystal.co.uk and ns2.krystal.co.uk

are *temporarily* set to ns1.groupabc.co.uk and ns2.groupabc.co.uk

Update: The DNS issues has now been fixed – although it may take an hour or so for things to return to normal.

We are working with Nominet to reverse the change.

We apologise for any inconvenience the DNS disruption has caused today, and would like to assure our clients that we are doing all we can to resolve this matter as quickly as possible.

This is likely the reason for the slow DAC:

I spoke to Krystal and Nominet on the issue

You can change in bulk (if you are a registrar) in domain manager / search filter - search for all name servers with ns1.groupabc.co.uk - then you can change all in one go

As mentioned above, they seem to have resolved the issue so all should be fixed but it is a strange one, nominet hinted 'will never happen again' [sic]

I have been waiting for this to sort itself, but the nameservers are still "groupabc" so I have done as you suggested. Hopefully the sites are back up soon.

Krystal just phoned me at home with an update on the problem earlier today as they had seen this thread.

The initial problem was caused by Krytsals nameserver glue records being accidentally changed, although this was quickly identified the Nominet systems were preventing the changes being reversed, this may be something to do with Nominet testing their failover systems today.

The problem is resolved now, I can now access my websites again, the whois is showing the groupabc.co.uk nameservers but it's working OK through these. Krystal did mention that some of the BT nameservers maybe caching older DNS records but this should resolve itself overnight.

Hats off to Krystal for taking the time to phone and explain the cause of the problem, just unfortunate it happened the same day Nominet were working on their systems.

Mark.

All my sites are sorted after doing the bulk nameserver change on Nominet.
