    I've installed new OS on my dedi box, and when I go to basic WHM setup and want to change nameservers to my own (registered at GoDaddy), I'm getting this error:

    Cannot determine ip for dns1.bla.com

    When I try to click first at "Assign IP address" it says:

    Sorry, the nameserver dns1.bla.com already has the ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx assigned to it.

    Any idea how to deal with this?

    The simplest workaround would be to temporarily delete the child nameservers dns1.bla.com
    and dns2.bla.com at godaddy.com.

    Then, in WHM click at "Assign IP address" - it should assign the free i.p.s for both nameservers - then enable the child nameservers at godaddy - and make sure the i.p.s match.

    I'm having the same problem

    Only I have a virtual private server. Will this work for me as well, if I delete the ip's, then assign them after assigning them in the first time setup or after I've gone through the inital setup?

    Thanks

    Never an Answer for DNS on Virtual Server

    This question was asked in about 2007? Does anyone have an answer for this? I'd like to know...
