    Hi

    I have 2 dns servers that are NOT cpanel. They are good old centos boxes running named. How can I get the cpanel boxes to play nice and update the dns servers when I create a new account?

    Regards
    Russ

    Go on, have a guess
    You would have to setup a traditional master/slave DNS configuration, which means that you'll have to add new zones yourself to the slaves unless you write a script to do that for you.

    Cpanel and DNS part Deux

    Chirpy

    Thanks for your reply. I was not quite correct in what I said. Let me explain. I have a cpanel DNS server that is right now the MASTER dns server. I have a NON-cpanel dns server that is new and is the SLAVE. However the MASTER DNS Cpanel server will not talk to the SLAVE non-cpanel DNS server.

    My eventual goal is to eliminate the cpanel MASTER dns server and reload it with a NON-cpanel dns server.

    For right now I would like to get the SLAVE (non-cpanel) to capture everyting on the MASTER (cpanel) so that I can take the MASTER offline and reload it.

    Can you help me understand what I need to do so that this will work?

    Regards
    Russ
