Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I was installing SSL on website, I added new dedicated IP and sub-domain: crm.lawfirm.org.ua. lawfirm.org.ua is pointed to xname dns server and then to a hosting dns - by arvixe. For "crm" subdomain I added A - pointing to new dedicated IP. The problem is that after 3 days sometimes its changing IP to new and it works, and sometimes goes back to old. ping.eu for example showing right IP for monday and tuesday, while others not.

Most likely it's a caching problem, which may take 7 days to resolve itself. Beyond that we need to see actual A & CNAME records to help, not enough info is provided. –  Ed Fries Jan 26 '11 at 16:35

Have you recently changed your nameservers? If I ask ns0.xname.org about the nameservers for lawfirm.org.ua, I see two sets of servers listed:

$ host -t ns lawfirm.org.ua ns0.xname.org
Using domain server:
Name: ns0.xname.org
Address: 195.234.42.1#53
Aliases: 

lawfirm.org.ua name server ns2.palm.arvixe.com.
lawfirm.org.ua name server ns2.xname.org.
lawfirm.org.ua name server ns0.xname.org.
lawfirm.org.ua name server ns1.palm.arvixe.com.
lawfirm.org.ua name server ns1.xname.org.

I get a different ip address for crm.lawfirm.org.ua depending on which servers I ask. Compare this:

$ host crm.lawfirm.org.ua ns0.xname.org
Using domain server:
Name: ns0.xname.org
Address: 195.234.42.1#53
Aliases: 

crm.lawfirm.org.ua has address 69.72.152.131

To this:

$ host crm.lawfirm.org.ua ns1.palm.arvixe.com
Using domain server:
Name: ns1.palm.arvixe.com
Address: 69.72.152.130#53
Aliases: 

crm.lawfirm.org.ua has address 69.72.152.155

It looks as if you may need to clean up the list of nameservers at xname.org.

Very nice, I assumed "lawfirm" was a placeholder for the actual name! –  Ed Fries Jan 26 '11 at 17:09
