    Hello,
    I have this question on my mind. One of our servers have too many accounts in it. We want to split it but we don't want downtime.

    If I add this server to DNS cluster, and add second one, can I safely transfer accounts to second server in DNS cluster without having downtime? Server IP will be changed, but it's in same dns cluster. So will our clients have dns cache issues when they trying to connect their websites?

    Hi @chonk

    Yes! This should work as long as the DNS (A record especially) get's updated accordingly.

    Thanks!

    Just to make sure. I want to ask this again.

    existing.server.com
    ns1.dns.com 1.1.1.1
    ns2.dns.com 1.1.1.2

    >>>>DNS<<<< cluster server 2.2.2.1
    >>>>ONLY<<< cluster server 2.2.2.2

    new.server.com
    ns3.dns.com 3.3.3.1
    ns4.dns.com 3.3.3.2


    so in this situation, i should change ns1, ns2, ns3, ns4 dns IP's to 2.2.2.1 and 2.2.2.2.
    After it's done, i'm free to move between them easily?

    Hi @chonk


    As long as all DNS for the domain is updated properly as well as the cluster being configured this should work for you.
