    hello!


    Please I would like ask apologies if this is not the right place.
    At the moment i have **production** 2 servers that work independently Dns-wise.
    They are set-up as:

    Server1:
    Hostname name.domain1.com xxx.xxx.xxx.1

    Nameservers
    ns1.domain1.com xxx.xxx.xxx.2
    ns2.domain1.com xxx.xxx.xxx.3


    Server2:
    Hostname: Name.anotherdomain.com YYY.YYY.YYY.11

    Nameservers
    ns1.anotherdomain.com YYY.YYY.YYY.12
    ns2.anotherdomain.com YYY.YYY.YYY.13

    My goal would be made redundant nameservers, as if 1 server would be off line the request would be still be serverd by the other.
    Also the mail would be "put on hold" (incoming) if one server is offline.

    I wonder if is possible Link them, this is make the fallowing.
    Please let me know if there is any downside.

    Server1:
    Hostname name.domain1.com xxx.xxx.xxx.1

    Nameservers
    ns1.domain1.com xxx.xxx.xxx.2
    ns2.domain1.com YYY.YYY.YYY.12


    Server2:
    Hostname: Name.anotherdomain.com YYY.YYY.YYY.11

    Nameservers
    ns1.domain1.com xxx.xxx.xxx.2
    ns2.domain1.com YYY.YYY.YYY.12

    I know that if i start from scratch, this would be easy, am not so sure on production machines.
    Also i would like know if--:

    - A later date i can add a 3 name server (dedicated Vps)
    - Further down on the line could i "shut-down" nameservers on both servers and move off site into 2 extra Vps.

    Thanks for your wonderful wise help.

    Hiya!

    PlotHost is right about the documentation. This is done by accessing Home >> Cluster/Remote Access >> Configure Cluster

    The thing to remember is that since accounts can be created on any server in the cluster, you will have to share the Root Access Key. This means that anyone that is allowed to change DNS records on one server will have access to change them from any of the servers.
