DS record points to old DNSKEY record

This alert notifies you that a Key Signing Key (KSK) rotation is in progress for the zone and the DS record handed out by a parent zone points to the old DNSKEY record. It means that DNSSEC cannot authenticate the DNS records because the key doesn't match.

You can set this alert to monitor multiple DNS zones.


To create this alert, you need to have the ALERTS_DNSSEC scope. For more information, contact your account administrator.
