    Hello

    I had one server that was using host name test1.domain.com with ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com

    Nameservers where registered to domain registrat as well.

    Lately i did get a new server as well and i want to use the same domain with hostname test2.domain.com
    and nameservers ns3.domain.com ns4.domain.com

    I did setup new server with test2.domain.com as hostname , added the nameserver's IPs and A entries for it, registered ns3,ns4 in domain registrat and also did a DNS cluster between the 2 servers .

    But for some reason i can't see test2.domain.com or ns3,ns4 to work... Is something i missed?

    have you waited a sufficient amount of time for your ISP for propagation?
    are you caching the the DNS or in this case caching nothing?
    have you checked from a third party site?

    Hello :)

    Please keep in mind that you must setup the "A" records for "NS3/NS4/Test2" on the original server, as that's where the DNS for "domain.com" is handled. A DNS cluster is not helpful if domain names are assigned name servers from just one server in a cluster. I advise disabling the cluster unless you plan on changing the name servers of your domain names.

    Thank you.

    Hi cPanelMichael! Thank you for reply!
    Actually I have the following configuration.
    I have a VPS-1 with WHM/Cpanel. I use aaa.myname.com as a hostname. I use my private name servers ns1.myname.com and ns2.myname.com
    Recently I ordered a new VPS-2 with WHM/Cpanel, created a DNS cluster. I use bbb.mydomain.com as host name.
    Now I wander if I can use the same name servers for VPS-2.
    Actually I have a domain(example.me) hosted in VPS-2, which doesn't respond at all. Even in who.is, while you try to search who is example.me, you get zero result.

    short answer yes you can use the same name servers
    Make sure you have the cluster set up to synchronize
