DNS Error - Superfluous name server

Hi,

I'm trying to fix the below errors, I have added all A Records and NS Records to the nameserver domain, but to no avail.

Superfluous name server listed at parent: ns1.domain1.com

A name server listed at the parent, but not at the child, was found. This is most likely an administrative error. You should update the parent to match the name servers at the child as soon as possible.

Superfluous name server listed at parent: ns2.domain1.com

A name server listed at the parent, but not at the child, was found. This is most likely an administrative error. You should update the parent to match the name servers at the child as soon as possible.

Superfluous name server listed at parent: ns3.domain1.com

A name server listed at the parent, but not at the child, was found. This is most likely an administrative error. You should update the parent to match the name servers at the child as soon as possible.

Superfluous name server listed at parent: ns4.domain1.com

A name server listed at the parent, but not at the child, was found. This is most likely an administrative error. You should update the parent to match the name servers at the child as soon as possible.

Total parent/child glue mismatch.

The parent lists name servers that the child doesnt know about, see details in advanced. This configuration could actually work but breaks very easily if one of these zones change slightly.

Too few IPv4 name servers (1).

Only one IPv4 name server was found for the zone. You should always have at least two IPv4 name servers for a zone to be able to handle transient connectivity problems.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hi,

I had seen this post but it doesn't give enough detail to solve the issue, I added the A and NS records to the nameserver domain on the server and that didn't work?

The DNS servers listed for domain1.com at your domain registrar must have ns1.domain1.com, ns2.domain1.com, ns3.domain1.com and ns4.domain1.com with the matching IP addresses.

My current setup for the nameserver domain is below

Hi,

Once I added the 4 nameservers to the actual target domain this solved the problem.
