    We would like to install central DNS server in such way all the WHM's will use it to store the DNS Zones.
    We are trying to figure out the way the WHM will synchronize the changes made to this server to central DNS only and will not see other servers zones.
    We tried the following:

    1. Install cPanel DNS only server
    2. Install cPanel WHM and configured the DNS server above as the DNS server for new accounts.
    3. Configured DNS Cluster on the DNS Server and WHM:

    DNS Cluster on DNS Only server:
    Add WHM server as the cluster member and set it in "Stand Alone" mode.

    DNS Cluster in WHM Server:
    Add DNS Only server as the cluster member and set it in "Synchronize Changes" mode

    4. Added one more WHM server and configured it same as the first WHM server.

    What happened is that one WHM is now able to "see" and "edit" the other WHM server DNS Zones. This is not what we want. Instead, we want each WHM to see and edit only his own DNS Zones, while the central DNS has all the Zones available for view and editing.

    Does anyone has some guides on how to configure this properly ?

    Thanks in advance !

    There is currently no way to allow other servers to sync to a DNS cluster and yet not see the zones of the other machines in the cluster. If you do not want a server to see the zones of the other servers, that server cannot be in the cluster.
