Hi All,

We are trying to register as additional name server for domain besides existing name server We have
successfully added as additional name servers beside for domain.

However request to add to through educause was
reject with the following:
Your Nameserver change has NOT been completed.

Detail: This request has been rejected because the name server that was
added is not a valid registered name server:

NS2.CPS.K12.IL.US <>

Please make sure to add only valid, registered name servers.

We worked closely with our partner and confirmed that is
a registered name server in as below:
Server Name:
IP Address:
Registrar: State of Illinois
Registrar WHOIS Server:
Registrar URL:
>>> Last update of WHOIS database: 2018-01-09T15:27:48Z <<< showed

No match for nameserver "NS2.CPS.K12.IL.US".

but showed the following for existing

   Server Name: NS.CPS.K12.IL.US
   Registrar: Network Solutions, LLC.
   Registrar WHOIS Server:
   Registrar URL:
>>> Last update of whois database: 2018-01-10T21:30:38Z <<<

Our partner Illinois has network solution account, but not able to

CPS does not have network solution account, I am puzzled what role
networksolutions is playing here.

Is there anything we are missing here in order to register as an additional name server for domain?
