On the installation I selected the first two IP's of my machine to use as DNS.

Example:
Ns1.mysite.com = 122.0.0.1
Ns2.mysite.com = 122.0.0.2


I already installed a few sites on the WHM, and everything is running, but the IP 122.0.0.1 is flagged as Spam in a Google and I need to change it.

How can I set the NameServers in the WHM for other IP's like
Ns1.mysite.com = 122.0.0.2
Ns2.mysite.com = 122.0.0.3

I tried to change the configuration on Basic CPanel & WHM Setup, but when I click on "Add an A entry for this nameserver" it says that the IP 122.0.0.1 has already an entry for this nameserver.

And the EDIT DNS ZONE function, seens only to work for separeted accounts, not the WHM itself...

You change it in 2 places:

in the registrar of the domain mysite.com

and

in the DNS zone of the domain mysite.com

But if I change it on the registrar it still appears on WHM as the old ones, and all my sites become unacessible...
So you didn't change them in the DNS zone of the domain mysite.com?
That's why.

Hello :)

The functionality of the "Nameserver IPs" page is for visual purposes only. It is a report, and not a page meant to configure any aspect of DNS. It reports the nameservers used by DNS zones on the server, as well as a count of the the number of zones that use a given nameserver. The important entries on the cPanel server are the "A" records that you have added for your name servers. Thus, as long as you have registered these name servers to the matching IP addresses at the domain registrar, then no further DNS configuration is required after ensuring the "A" records are added on the cPanel server.

Thank you.
