    Hello all-

    Quick question before I setup DNS clustering:

    My setup:
    • (ns1 and ns2) running for three years. This server obviously holds the Zone file for to which I temporarily added an A entry to point on my second server's hostname, see below)
    • (ns3 and ns4): brand new server. During whm setup it created a Zone file for my hostname, i.e. (obviously containing nothing but ns entries for ns3 and ns4).

    My question is the following:

    It appears to me that in a clustering setup the Zone file for will be useless: Therefore, after completing my clustering setup, can I remove the Zone file for whereas I will manually copy server2 A records (already there) and ns3+ns4 entries (NS + A entries) into my main domain Zone file (

    I thank in advance for your most valuable assistance. Any advice will be appreciated as it is hard to find complete how-tos for newbies on DNS clustering. I will assume that if my question doesn't make any sense it is because I am still a long way from understading DNS setup !
