whois database not being updated...

  • From: John Fraizer
  • Date: Sun Mar 28 21:06:07 1999

Has anyone noticed that the whois database is not showing updates to objects?

What I mean is, although it shows...

Database last updated on 27-Mar-99 16:27:44 EST.

...objects are not showing up in the database.

Example:

We received confirmation on one of our clients domains:

From: Domain Registration Role Account <domreg@internic.net>
Message-Id: <199903262007.PAA29021@mts2.internic.net>
Subject: Re: [NIC-990326.839e] 1GIG.NET
Date: Fri, 26 Mar 1999 15:07:36 -0500 (EST)
Reply-To: domreg@internic.net

Cc: noc@ENTERZONE.NET
X-Mailer: fastmail [version 2.4 PL24alpha4]
X-UIDL: 227373416c861caaa4cc3d0efb76e90a

Registration for the domain name shown below has been completed.


Yet, a whois shows NOTHING:

[root@Overkill /root]# whois 1gig.net
[rs.internic.net]
No match for "1GIG.NET".

The InterNIC Registration Services database contains ONLY
non-military and non-US Government Domains and contacts.
Other associated whois servers:
   American Registry for Internet Numbers - whois.arin.net
   European IP Address Allocations        - whois.ripe.net
   Asia Pacific IP Address Allocations    - whois.apnic.net
   US Military                            - whois.nic.mil
   US Government                          - whois.nic.gov


But, it's in the zone file:

[root@Overkill /root]# nslookup
Default Server:  NS1.ENTERZONE.NET
Address:  209.41.244.5
> server ns.netsol.com
Default Server:  ns.netsol.com
Address:  198.41.0.196

> 1gig.net
Server:  ns.netsol.com
Address:  198.41.0.196

Non-authoritative answer:
1gig.net        nameserver = NS1.ENTERZONE.NET
1gig.net        nameserver = NS2.ENTERZONE.NET

Authoritative answers can be found from:
1gig.net        nameserver = NS1.ENTERZONE.NET
1gig.net        nameserver = NS2.ENTERZONE.NET
NS1.ENTERZONE.NET       internet address = 209.41.244.5
NS2.ENTERZONE.NET       internet address = 209.41.244.6
