    I've set up Cpanel DNS Only on a VPS in Germany.

    Due to lack of knowledge / lack of documentation, I am having problems getting it to work.

    1. Is it correct that Cpanel DNS Only WHM does not have the DNS editor, nor does it have the configuration for setting up the name servers?

    2. If this is correct, how do I setup the nameservers on the DNS Only server?

    3. I was able to setup the clustering and have the primary nameserver set to synchronize to the DNS Only server. (on the main server, in the clustering section, it shows the dns path as:

    mainserver -->> dnsonlyserver.

    I've found no documentation that addresses these basic issues. It would be extremely helpful to have this documented. It seems like I am within an inch of getting this working, but working blind, it is impossible to tell.

    Typically DNS-Only is used to cluster DNS setups, not run separate nameservers. Typically in a DNS cluster, all servers retain a copy of all DNS records and the DNS records are maintained by the cPanel/WHM server hosting the appropriate website(s).
