I have a domain,
example.co.uk, and it has its nameservers registered with the registrar as
current-nameserver.co.uk. It has a TXT record with value ORIGINAL.
I decide to change DNS providers to
new-nameserver.co.uk. As a test, I set the TXT record to have the value NEW.
The idea to test the new server is lookup the TXT record and see what is returned,
However, I try:
dig @new-nameserver.co.uk example.co.uk TXT
Despite trying numerous combinations of command, the value ORIGINAL is always returned.
Why is this? And how can I preventa DNS server from providing an authoritative answer, as it appears it is aware that is not part of the normal chain as not registered with the parent nameserver.
Is there a command line option available, or is overiding the root nameserver (as in Testing nameserver configuration using it ) the only option?
