Quoting Mark Constable on Monday December 01, 2003:
| Now, however NetSol say that I must make these changes locally
| with my national nameserver registry, which I guess is AUDA,
| or via the AU registry for this domain. I've contacted Intaserve,
| the registry for the domain itself, and they advised the best
| thing to do is forget the old nameservers and create 4 new ones
| with the AUDA and take it from there.
| Fine... except we have at least 200 vhosted domains that all
| need to have their nameserver entries changed from the old NS
| entries to these new ones. This is not impossible to do but I
| am pissed off that I can't do what I used to be able to with
| NetSol and have no explanation as to why or when this change
| of the NS guard happened.

There is no reason why a registrar can't offer a service to bulk manage
nameservers for a collection of registered domains. I'd ask them to
provide this service or move to someone who can.

Another alternative is not to use domains that require glue. Then you
don't need to do anything when you renumber except modify your zone.

| If could at least be assurred from NetSol that the old entries
| would be deleted from the face of the planet I could go with the
| new ones and just update all our vhosts, but even that remains
| an unanswerred issue.

NetSol is a gTLD registar and doesn't operate any registries any more. A
seperate company, VeriSign, now operates the gTLD registry for .com and
.net only. The concept of an InterNIC with global NIC mapping schemes
disappeared a long time ago.

| The kicker is... what happens when we give our old IP range back
| to APNIC and they then reallocate them to someone else... what
| happens to the 4 IPs currently (or were) allocated to our original
| 4 nameservers when someone else goes to (re)use those same IPs
| in the future ?

Well, this is peculiar problem to the NetSol registration system which they
are aware of and is stupid. I now have a NetSol authority for the IP
number associated the primary authoritative server for .UK just because
of this weird system.

| Anyway, any advice as to the best way to go in this situaion would
| be appreciated.

Talk to your registrar. If they value your business they will provide
you with a solution.
