Hi Bernie, It is possible that there is only 1 physical host. Also the best thing is to have nameservers in different subnets and different networks (where possible even different buildings). I don't know the RFC numbers. 2 nameservers are enough if they are on different locations and different networks and different subnets however. With kind regards, Met vriendelijke groet, Mark Scholten Stream Service Web: http://www.streamservice.nl/ E-mail: mark at streamservice.nl NOC: http://www.mynoc.eu/ NOC e-mail: noc at streamservice.nl Tel.: +31 (0)642 40 86 02 KVK: 08141074 BTW: NL104278274B01 ----- Original Message ----- From: "Bernie Hoeneisen" <bhoeneis at switch.ch> To: "Jim Reid" <jim at rfc1035.com> Cc: "RIPE ENUM WG" <enum-wg at ripe.net> Sent: Monday, January 21, 2008 5:55 PM Subject: Re: [enum-wg] Italian Nameservers for 9.3.164.arpa. dead?

Would Ripe have the possibility to (temporarly) remove the delegation, if such situations occur? Unfortunately, it happens quite often with Italy....:-( > It is particularly disappointing that the 9.3.e164.arpa zone seems to > delegated to just two name servers that live on the same subnet.

(Both IPs report at the same time nameserver down, but hosts up.) cheers, Bernie
