Hi everybody

I have a domain which is using a wrong serial number in SOA.


the length of serial number is longer than the definition in RFC1912=20

when I query the domain SOA record from other name server, it shows the =
serial number is

I want to modify to the serial with correct length

e.g 2005061001

Does it has any problem in domain query by other name server after =
modify to correct length=20

or should I modify it with

2870740818 in the SOA record.

Please help

thx very much
