Hi Pieter,
thank you very much. I thought this would be automated, when enabling DNSSEC for a zone, sorry.
I already had SOA-EDIT-API metadata (INCEPTION-INCREMENT ) for the zone in my database.
Just to clear this out again - i have two choices:
Add another metadata record of kind "SOA-EDIT" to the database or set "default-soa-edit-signed" in pdns.conf.
