Zonefile production information

A new zonefile production line has been developed as part of the DNSSEC project.

Here is some status information about the zonefile production.

  • The new production line was put into operation on 17 December 2013.
  • From 17 December and till 3 January, zonefiles were generated and sent through the production line under manual control.
    Zonefiles were then generated every two hours during working hours.
  • Since 3 January, the production has been fully automatic.
    Zonefiles are generated four times a day, during working hours, at 08:00, 10:30, 13:00 and 15:30 (CET).
  • The next step is to extend the production to run 24/7.
    Before this can be done, we need to clarify a few more practical tasks. We will send out new information before this change is implemented.
  • Note: In addition to automatic production, zonefiles can be produced at other times if there are special needs.
