    Is the reverse trust necessary between a web server and a DNS server using cPanel's DNS Cluster?

    I know that web1, web2, etc will have to have root's remote access hash from ns1, ns2, etc. This is necessary for web1 to contact the DNS servers and make the DNS changes.

    But is it necessary for ns1 to have root's remote access hash for all of the web servers in the hash (web1, web2, etc)?

    When you set up the cluster from web1 it automatically gives ns1 it's (web1's) remote access hash. If you log into ns1 you can delete this, and DNS seems to still be replicated from web1 to ns1.

    So is it really necessary for ns1 to have the remote access hash for all of the web servers?

    Only if you require synchronization in both directions. If you only need web1 to push to dns1 then the reverse trust is not needed.

    Where does cPanel keep that remote access hash?
