Can't change nameservers


#1

Hello
I use eu.org subdomain and when I try change the nameservers then I get this message:

What is the problem?
I can see that eu.org can’t connect or something like that to cloudflare ipv6 address. If I register an another subdomain and get other nameservers from cloudflare then I can change nameservers.


#2

If resubmitting the change doesn’t work, I would recommend contacting their support. All Cloudflare nameservers have both IPv6 and v6 addresses as far as I am aware, so I don’t believe changing doa different pair would change the IPv6 lookup.

dig idunetwork.eu.org soa @2400:cb00:2049:1::adf5:3ac5 +short
clay.ns.cloudflare.com. dns.cloudflare.com. 2025286745 10000 2400 604800 3600

Doing the same lookup from my machine that I imagine they are attempting works. So if it wasn’t a transient error it might be a problem with the validation script they use.


#3

If I change to cloudns then it works:

No error, applying changes...

Done

Hmm I don’t know.


#4

hmm… (feeling like an idiot now). If you retry with the CF servers do you get the same error?


#5

Yeah, I get the same error (only timeout ms is different):
