Hi, I'm attempting to figure how to get autoserial working in our POC
environment. I've tried to following but my serial doesn't appear to change
when any records are updated:


backend SOA record = 'a.misconfigured.powerdns.server
hostmaster.foo2.example.com 0 10800 3600 604800 3600'

dig SOA response = 'foo2.example.com.		3600	IN	SOA
a.misconfigured.powerdns.server. hostmaster.foo2.example.com. 2016040701
10800 3600 604800 3600'

I've added a record for test1.foo2.example.com using the powerdns API, and
the record appears in queries, but the serial does not increment and the
backend database has change_date = NULL for all entries.

Am I going about this the wrong way or will we have to add some sort of a
trigger for change_date since according to  here
"The autoserial functionality makes PowerDNS generate the SOA serial when
the SOA serial set to 0 in the database. The serial in SOA responses is set
to the highest value of the change_date field in the "records" table"
