    Hi, I know this is unsupported, but has anyone got a method to do this?
    I've looked into it but I don't know which way is best, using BIND's builtin slave/master method or file transfers...

    I know dnsonly exists, but the boxes aren't just for DNS.


    Thanks

    Did you ever get this figured out?

    I too would like to sync the DNS zones on my WHM server with BIND on a non WHM server...

    I have a script which logs into CPanel at regular intervals, gets the list of dns domains, and if it has changed, rebuilds the bind config. This is run on DNS servers which act as a slave to the CPanel server. On the CPanel server, I have a script which runs at regular intervals and builds a list of domains by getting /var/named/*.db

    the way dns clustering is implemented in cPanel isn't true to the master/slave design, you'd need to script something yourself afaik
