Hopefully I explain this clearly.

I have 2 web servers, live and development. All domains are managed through an external DNS. I am not using WHM/Cpanel nameservers.

Live server hostname is like: liveserver.mysite.com
Dev server hostname is like: devserver.mysite.com

My live server is up and running fine with WHM/Cpanel. I can access everything perfectly through the hostname:2086.

If I go to the devserver hostname I get a page not found, the DNS A record for the subdomain is pointing to the devserver IP. I setup a test on another domain I own: dev.othersite.com. I pointed this A record to the devserver and I can access WHM fine through this test url but cannot get into cpanel for specific accounts. I assume this is because the test url is NOT the hostname.

I need the host name to be devserver.mysite.com but I am thinking there is some sort of conflict with the DNS?

Here is a breakdown of what the DNS for mysite.com looks like and please tell me if any of you see possible conflicts.

live server IP: 123.456.789.01
dev server IP; 123.456.789.02

www.mysite.com - 123.456.789.01
@ (None).mysite.com - 123.456.789.01
* (All Others).mysite.com - 123.456.789.01
liveserver.mysite.com - 123.456.789.01
devserver.mysite.com - 123.456.789.02

1. Have you tried removing the A records for your hostname and then adding it back again?
2. have you checked that the NS entries for your hostname's main domain is pointed correctly at the Registrar?

Please make sure that there is no separate entry for devserver.mysite.com in named.conf and seperate DNS zone file for devserver.mysite.com. You only need the DNS A entry for devserver in the DNS zone file of mysite.com.
