How to check if nameservers are correctly set up

Hi,

The short version of my question is, how can I verify if my nameservers are correctly set up for a particular domain?

I have web hosting from a large provider who have given me my own private label nameservers:
ns1.compubase.ie
ns2.compubase.ie

I'm having trouble moving a particular domain, darcol.ie, from a different web host to these nameservers. This other web host's system is giving me this error:
"Answer from ns2.compubase.ie does not match that from ns1.compubase.ie] [Error/status code: 400] "
One of their techs tells me that the SOA records returned by those nameservers do not match, which is a problem that my web host needs to correct.  However, my web host is adamant that the nameservers are set up correctly and that there shouldn't be a problem.

Can any DNS expert shed light on where the problem is?

Hello..

Its seems your SOA is failing hence the issues you are having.

Go here:

http://dnssy.com/index.php

and test domain:  compubase.ie that has 'ns1.compubase.ie' & 'ns1.compubase.ie' preconfigured
Look at SOA info and it says failed.

Go back to your provider with proof :)

Good luck.

Perfect.  Hosting company seems now to be admitting that there's a problem with the nameservers they manage for us.  Thanks  Iekos.
