    Hello All,

    Here is my setup of WHM DNS only.

    ns1.nameservers.com : WHM DNS only
    ns2.nameservers.com : WHM DNS only

    web1.server.com : WHM
    web2.server.com : WHM

    I have configured the cluser as following.

    DNS role for ns1.nameservers.com and ns2.nameservers.com on web1.server.com / web2.server.com as "Synchronize changes"

    DNS role for web1.server.com and web2.server.com on ns1.nameservers.com / ns2.nameservers.com as "Standalone"

    So now here is the issue.

    1. All the setup is working fine without any issue.

    2. But the dns zones for the domains on 'web1.server.com' also visible on 'web2.server.com' from 'Edit DNS Zone' option and vice a versa.

    So what I want the dns zones of web server should not be visible to another server.

    Web server should show only the DNS zones added from itself only.

    How can I achieve this set up.

    Hello All,

    What I think we can set this using following way.

    DNS role for ns1.nameservers.com and ns2.nameservers.com on web1.server.com / web2.server.com as "write-only"

    DNS role for web1.server.com and web2.server.com on ns1.nameservers.com / ns2.nameservers.com as "Standalone"

    When we set up ns1 and ns2 DNS role as 'write-only' : web server's WHM will not check whether a DNS zone exists before you create an account and web server can only write/edit the zones to name servers but will not "Synchronize" the data (DNS zones) with name servers.

    I will test it further and will update the post.

    Hello :)

    The current DNS cluster functionality is not designed to be shared between different customers, but is intended for systems where only a single admin (or trusted group of admins) is managing the entire cluster. There is an active feature request for what you are seeking at:

    Ownership and access control of zones in DNS Cluster

    Feel free to vote and add your input to this feature request.

    Thank you.
