Use an own name server for domain and sub domains



I want to run an own nameserver for our organisation. So I set up BIND with all necessary information and want to change the DNS settings at OVH. So I followed the instructions at

  1. set a glue record ( --> [""])
  2. set two A records which point to ns and ns2 (ns IN A; ns2 IN A

Both steps seemed to work. The last step is to change the DNS server. But when I try to change the servers from the OVH ones to and those changes are reset. The operations log just says “cancelling DNS update” without any further information.

Can someone help me and tell what I’m doing wrong here?
