    When I try to assign an IP for Nameserver in WHM for ns1.*********.com / ns2.*********.com, it just hangs their and keeps saying "Assigning Ip Address for ns1.*********.com" and nothing happens.

    I'm using:

    cPanel 11.24.4-C33868 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9
    CENTOS 5.2 i686 on standard

    This process is looking up the nameservers at the registrar level. It reads the
    whois database and assigns the ip this way. To change the ip you will need to
    change this at the registrar.

    There is also an option to change this in "tweak settings"
    Just log into WHM as root and click on

    Main >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings
    look for

    "Disable whois lookups for the nameserver IP manager."
    and check the box.
