Re: What happened to root-server serial number?
- From: Peter Dambier

Thankyou for asking.
I do care for the health of the root-servers.
Many say there is only one root but they forget to mention which one.
All root-servers try to keep in sync somehow.
Right now root-servers.net is not in sync with its zone file.
If the reason should be a natural desaster of any kind then
Public-Root would be obliged to offer publishing the zone file,
without asking any undue questions and without making any undue
Everything my be discussed on a private channel.
I also noticed there is a major difference between the old and
the new zone file. Could this be the reason why there was no
update on the servers?
I tried to load the root-zone file on my personal root-server and
did not live through any problems but right now my server is IPv4
To spare search and debug, here is the diff:

why do you care?
because root server status is one measure of internet
infrastructure status and stability.
yes it is... and having hundreds/thousands of
folks checking has its own set of issues.
I note that Peter was kind enough to show that
all the root servers he was able to reach - AGREED -
on the serial number they were using.
why do you want to imply that caring that a root
server does not respond is inappropriate?
does not respond from where? after all,
one does not have to reach -all- the root servers.
Getting to one is sufficent.
that said, Peter has his own "root-servers" and so
my question to him was why he should care about other
folks root servers.
