    When I am adding a reseller to the server in the WHM, and I'm adding their custom Nameservers, after I make sure the nameservers are already CREATED, with the ASSIGNED ip's,
    I then click on Add an A entry, and I see the correct info, so
    I click the Add the entry button, and I get this error, every time:

    Adding an A entry for nameserver ns1.mydom.biz
    Zone does not exist, a new zone for . will be created.
    Sorry, a DNS entry for . already exists, please delete it first

    I changed the domain name to mydom

    What is causing this problem?
    It happens EVERY TIME, with EVERY RESELLER account I create!

    Adding &A& as far as I know is just for the Primary nameserver that you server uses. I know when I want to use other nameservers I just pick the IPS, reserver them and go into the DNS for the domain and put an &a& record in that zone file for the domain and point it to that IP. It seems to work well with my servers

    Thank you, I'll give it a shot.

    That would make since, if it does work on all servers.

    Thank you for sharing!
