Verify zone information

After configuration is complete, zone transfer agents can begin zone transfers from your primary name servers.

If your primary name servers are behind a firewall, or if you have a name server access control list, remember to include the IP addresses of the zone transfer agents in these lists to allow the transfer to occur.

You can verify that Akamai name servers have the most current zone information by using dig or nslookup to query them for the SOA (start of authority) record, and by checking the zone serial number against that of your primary name server.

Zone transfer status information is also available on the main Zone list page in Control Center. See View the zone transfer status for more information.
