    Kindly need someone help to guide me for DNS Cluster.
    I have configuration like bellow:
    Code:
    +-----------------------+
    | cPanel webserver      |
    | dns2 (ns2.domain.com) |
    +-----------------------+
                 |
    +------------+-------------+
    |dns1  (ns1.domain.com)    |
    |cPanel DNS Only           |
    +--------------------------+
    What role on both server i should use? Standalone, Synchronize or Writes Only?

    @cPanelMichael Hi Thanks for reply.

    The guidance make me a little confuse.
    My question is, what role should i used for both server.

    Server1:
    cPanel / WHM, host the web server and used as name server 2 / ns2.
    What role should i used for this DNS Cluster? Standalone, Synchronize or Writes Only?

    Server2:
    cPanel DNS Only, used as name server 1 / ns1
    What role should i used for this DNS Cluster? Standalone, Synchronize or Writes Only?

    at this time, i setup Server1 role as Write Only and at Server2 i didn't setup any Cluster at all.
    Configuration at Server1:
    SERVER1.JPG

    Configuration at Server2:
    SERVER2.JPG
    Does this correct?

    Thank You

    Your current configuration will work as expected. You don't have to setup a role for "Server1" on the DNS-Only server.

    Thank you.
