IP6.ARPA NAMESERVER CHANGE COMPLETED
This is a courtesy notification of a change to the nameserver set for the IP6.ARPA zone.
There is no expected impact on the functional operation of the DNS due to this change.
There are no actions required by DNS server operators or end users.
The IP6.ARPA zone is used to provide reverse mapping (number to name) for IPv6, as described in RFC 3596. The servers which previously provided authoritative DNS service for the IP6.ARPA zone were as follows:
TINNIE.ARIN.NET NS-SEC.RIPE.NET NS2.LACNIC.NET SEC1.APNIC.NET NS.ICANN.ORG
As previously advised, processing began on Wednesday 2010-12-01 to change the nameserver set to the following, as described in RFC 5855:
A.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by ARIN) B.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by ICANN) C.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by AfriNIC) D.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by LACNIC) E.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by APNIC) F.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by RIPE NCC)
This change is now complete.
