IP6.ARPA NAMESERVER CHANGE COMPLETED

This is a courtesy notification of a change to the nameserver set
for the IP6.ARPA zone.

There is no expected impact on the functional operation of the DNS
due to this change.

There are no actions required by DNS server operators or end users.

DETAIL

The IP6.ARPA zone is used to provide reverse mapping (number to
name) for IPv6, as described in  RFC 3596. The servers which
previously provided authoritative DNS service for the IP6.ARPA zone
were as follows:

  TINNIE.ARIN.NET
  NS-SEC.RIPE.NET
  NS2.LACNIC.NET
  SEC1.APNIC.NET
  NS.ICANN.ORG

As previously advised, processing began on Wednesday 2010-12-01 to
change the nameserver set to the following, as described in RFC
5855:

  A.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by ARIN)
  B.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by ICANN)
  C.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by AfriNIC)
  D.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by LACNIC)
  E.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by APNIC)
  F.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by RIPE NCC)

This change is now complete.
