Google Fect compains about "The page seems to redirect to itself."


I have a forum that was installed on a server before the final domain was hosted there. So the initial domain/link were:

Then I pointed the final domain so now it is:

I have two problems though:

First the links in the confirmation emails for new users show the testing link instead of the final one and second (and more serious) when I fetch the initial page of the forum with Google's Webmaster Tools it gives the error:

"The page seems to redirect to itself. This may result in an infinite redirect loop"

And this is what Google sees:

HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Date: Wed, 08 May 2013 10:52:49 GMT
Server: Apache
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Content-Encoding: gzip
Content-Length: 195
Keep-Alive: timeout=15, max=98
Connection: Keep-Alive
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

<title>301 Moved Permanently</title>
<h1>Moved Permanently</h1>
<p>The document has moved <a href="">here</a>.</p>

I guess Google is not going to index the forum. Would anyone know how this can be solved?

    Sorry, just noticed the title is not correct. I meant to right "Google Fetch complains..."

    Answering my own question. It appears that the problem was with the DNS configuration (a missing PTR record for the IPv6 range).
