    Guys...

    I need to change my name servers in whm. I go to "Main >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel & WHM Setup" and I chose the nameserver with my server's IP. However when I got to " Main >> Networking Setup >> Nameserver IPs" It still showing the wrong nameserver

    This wrong nameserver is the namserver os other cpanel server wich I have migrated sites from.


    I saved my changes and I also have restart named service and still doesn't applying my changes.

    As I've noted several times recently on the forum, the /etc/nameserverips file is no longer used for WHM's Nameserver IPs area. The file is now at /var/cpanel/nameserverips.yaml location.

    Thanks fro the Tips.

    Now I register the nameserver at godaddy yesterday. on the IP address field it says "NO IP"

    Do I have to wait more for the dns propagation or is there someting wrong with my server ?

    Thanks

    Where is the IP address field? Do you mean in WHM > List Accounts area? If not, please specify where precisely you are seeing this information. Thanks!

    here:

    Main >> Networking Setup >> Nameserver IPs

    I register the dns and add the "host sumary" entry for the dns ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com

    Then I went here "Main >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel & WHM Setup" and put the nameservers 1 and 2.

    It should appear on "Main >> Networking Setup >> Nameserver IPs" right?

    it's not.. .it show "NO IP"

    Noted :)
    same applies make sure you have a A records set up for ns1 & ns2

    note: what id displayed Nameserver IPs does not have any effect on your dns it may be it has not yet propagated 100%

    if you see your name server here http://reports.internic.net/cgi/whois?whois_nic=ns1.mydomain.com&type=nameserver then you have registered them correctly

    We had received clarification on this feature, and the nameserverips.yaml file from our developers. I wanted to share this to clarify the intended behavior.

    The functionality of the "Nameserver IPs" page was changed in 11.30. It is now a report, and not a page meant to configure any aspect of DNS. It reports the nameservers used by zones on the server, as well as a count of the the number of zones that use a given nameserver.

    The nameserverips.yaml file is automatically updated, and not meant to be altered by hand. Neither is the /etc/nameserverips file. The script /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/updatenameserverips populates the yaml file automatically. This script retrieves the information it populates the yaml file with by scanning the zones on the server for NS records, then using /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/quickdnslookup to get the IP.

    The correct way of updating the information on Nameserver IPs is through the "Basic cPanel & WHM Setup" page, and to ensure a proper DNS configuration. If the Nameserver IPs page is presenting incorrect information when DNS is set up correctly, this is a bug and should be reported via a support ticket.
