Root server change
Original post

Last January, for the first time in over five years, the IPv4 address of one of the DNS root servers changed.

As per their announcement, is moving from to While still works as a root server, this machine will eventually be taken offline.

This in mind, I have updated Deadwood’s default root server list as well as all references in the Deadwood’s documentation to use this new IP. Deadwood is MaraDNS 2’s recursive resolver.

Anyone with a Deadwood configuration file which has the old IP should update that file.

Note that MaraDNS 1 will not be updated, since this isn’t a security hole with a CVE number. Users of MaraDNS 1 need to transition to MaraDNS 2; MaraDNS 1 will no longer be supported at all on June 21, 2015.
