DENIC: Inconsistent set of NS RRs


#1

Hi! Recently I tried to use Cloudflare for the first time. I created my private account and added my customer’s domain to it. All was fine, but I did not do the final step - domain’s nameservers were not replaced with the ones provided by CF.
Then I left my account and create CF account for customer, where I added the same domain. CF provided new set of nameservers but the old one is still alive. When I’m trying to put new CF’s nameservers to the domain, DENIC (domain is in the .de zone) says “Error 118 Inconsistent set of NS RRs (IP, NS host names)”: I’m trying to set hal.ns.cloudflare.com and vita.ns.cloudflare.com (new set), but DENIC says there are eva.ns.cloudflare.com and damon.ns.cloudflare.com (old set) already.
I removed the domain from my private CF account, but it did not help - eva and damon are there still.

The question is: how can I delete eva and damon to let hal and vita do the job?

@zugaenge,

Apologize for the inconvenience. I believe this is due to an issue on our side with the IPv6 RR records for the nameservers. A fix is being vetted and we’ll push it as soon as we’re finished with that process.

Hello,
i have the same problem as @zugaenge but with
ken.ns.cloudflare.com
tricia.ns.cloudflare.com

Is this the same issue? Two of my domains were possible to change the DNS but one is not possible.

This Test tells me the following:

Severity	Code	Message / Parameters
Error	118	Inconsistent set of NS RRs (IP, NS host names)
tricia.ns.cloudflare.com./2400:cb00:2049:1:0:0:adf5:3ae8
[rita.ns.cloudflare.com, ben.ns.cloudflare.com]
Error	118	Inconsistent set of NS RRs (IP, NS host names)

Having the very same problem, when can we expect a solution?

Eventually, the issue has gone, and I have successfully set nameservers.
Do not know what exactly what did help, but my domain registrar told me to remove wildcard (*) domain from cloudflare and manually add all necessary subdomains.

Hi,

I have the same problem as @zugaenge but with jake.ns.cloudflare.com and lily.ns.cloudflare.com

Is this the same issue? One of my domains were possible to change the DNS but one is not possible.
