PLANNED IP6.ARPA NAMESERVER CHANGE
This is a courtesy notification of an upcoming 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 3152. The servers which currently provide authoritative DNS service for the IP6.ARPA zone are as follows:
TINNIE.ARIN.NET NS-SEC.RIPE.NET NS2.LACNIC.NET SEC1.APNIC.NET NS.ICANN.ORG
On Wednesday 2010-12-01 processing will begin 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)
The usual IANA process for a change in the ARPA zone involves a series of technical checks and the gathering of various authorisations, and may take several days to complete. Courtesy notification will be sent to this list once this change has been fully implemented.
