There are several name servers in Odin Automation infrastructure. All name servers are registered as master servers.

Checking SOA record serials for the same zone on different name servers, they do not match:

[root@osscore ~]# dig +short SOA 1490429141 14400 7200 2419200 300
[root@osscore ~]# dig +short SOA 1489156387 14400 7200 2419200 300


The behavior is recognized as a product issue POA-109561: SOA serial differs in master DNS servers for domain

The issue affects only Odin Automaion 7.0. In contrast with Odin Automation 6.0, the DNS serials are no longer stored on OA database side, but generated automatically by DNS update tasks. The tasks can become non-synchronous under high load of DNS changes, and the serials might become mismatched.


The issue has been fixed in Odin Automation 7.1 (please review release notes).

In order to resolve the issue, please consider to update to Odin Automation 7.1

Workaround for PowerDNS: Add any additional DNS record to the affected zone, process the DNS update tasks and remove the record. This way the zones will get in sync.

Currently there is no workaround for BIND DNS servers.
