Yup. The IEDR adds your application to the list of pending
changes. Once a day a script checks if your domain is setup
correctly and if your primary and secondaries are all in
Once they are, it commits the changes to the .ie zone file.
IIRC it will keep checking for two weeks before throwing out
your change request, so you've got plenty of time to get
your secondaries sorted.
OTOH, if granitecanyon actually checks for the existence of
domain.ie, then you're screwed. I'd offer to provide primary
or secondary only I'll be away for most of the next week
and a half, so wouldn't be around to deal with any issues.
