    Hello,

    I'm using the DNS Cluster function, but when one of the DNS is down, it's seems to bug everything on the network.

    Before, I've added the function to "keep all DNS online all time", because crash where mostly not very long, but this seems to cause problemes.

    My setup is 3 DNS in Cluster "Sync" both way and all my hosting server are connected those tree server in "Sync" to the DNS and "Standalone" from the DNS.

    My question is : If I turn on the "disable" feature and one of the DNS Fail. Will I have to go over ALL the server to restore it ? Can I turn this ON only on the 3 dns ?

    Howdy,

    You could add a custom chkconfig that forced sync to the failed nameserver after it came back.

    Thanks!
