It is not possible to attach hosting to a domain or to modify DNS records. The error is displayed in CP:

An unforeseen error occurred

The error in /var/log/pa/core.log is:

Feb 16 21:36:59.898 : DBG [UI:6ed4f8ec:1488018:1487277428508 RequestProcessor-5964 pau 1167374745]: c.p.p.c.ServiceInvoker DnsZoneMutator invocation failedjavax.ejb.EJBTransactionRolledbackException: Could not persist APS entity ""

There is no APS resource found for the domain ID in question:

# curl -k -E /usr/local/pem/APS/certificates/poa.pem ',eq(zoneId,12345)'

However, searching for the domain name, gives us a valid APS resource with a different zoneId:

# curl -k -E /usr/local/pem/APS/certificates/poa.pem ',eq(name,' -X GET
                        "type": "",
                        "id": "5e6e31c5-a058-45d4-b231-0cdab1c5de9f",
"name": ""
"zoneId": 10011


The cause of the error is a discrepancy between the domain and the zoneId value in domain's APS resource. The root cause behind such discrepancy has not been revealed yet.
