Keep in mind that once you make a DNS change it might take up to a few hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see the new DNS entries.

Can you confirm if it has already been more than 24/48 hours since the change?



Hi MassiveBlueCoral,

This error is usually shown when the DNS server has not been configured correctly.

I have found a tutorial that may be interesting for you. How To Configure DNS Round-Robin Load-Balancing For High-Availability

Hope helps you, Sergio Turpín
