DNS BIND issue

In DNS BIND, a zone was edited to update the IP for an A record. serial number was updated, The server continues to report the old IP. Zone was reloaded, server was rebooted.. Server is running Fedora. Resolv.conf points to loopback. Any ideas?
1 Solution
Try flushing the zone cache

rundc flush cache

If this doesnot work , then on the bind server, do nslookup and set server to localhost and query the A record, and see what it gives you.

same result
- increase the serial number a second time and retry ( or better use YYYYMMDD01, ... e.g. 2011101201)
- use "nslookup" or "dig" to query your nameserver and verify it still reports the wrong A record
- query the SOA record to verify the increased serial number
