Strange Serial Numbers
Posted on 2001-06-17
I have a strange fact I didn't understand, when creating those DNS domains files at /var/named directory.
I have a Script who generates those small files, and in the Serial info it composes a number who is formed by:
Well, it works without problem, with one exception: it generates a Serial number in the file, but when we nslookup the Domain, it shows another Serial number.
Please, try this domain:
nslookup -type=Soa areadeteste.com.br 184.108.40.206
It returns the Serial Number 364478947 but inside the areadeteste.com.br DNS file, the Serial number is 20010617111011.
When I used as Serial a number with less digits, the nslookup showed the right number.
. Is there a limitation in the lenght of the Serial Number? Could it be the reason?
. Where does it take the other Serial number from?
. Any idea about the problem?
Thanks a lot.
