    Hi!

    I'm sorry I'm beginner.

    I have 2 server:

    1. Main server. It has nameservers: ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com
    2. New server. I didn't register nameservers for the server yet.

    Can I create DNS cluster without create nameservers on the second server?
    Can I use for both server nameservers:
    ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com only?

    Can I create subdomain sub1.domain.com, sub2.domain.com ... etc. on the "New server"?

    I'm assuming that server 1 is set up to be the primary & secondary nameserver.
    Server 2 will need to be setup to use ns1 & ns2, but doesn't need to have the nameserver enabled on server 2 in order to create the DNS cluster... in fact, if both primary & secondary nameservers are on server 1, you shouldn't enable the nameserver on server 2.
    For both servers, you can use the same nameservers - thats kinda one of the main advantages of clustering!
    You can create sub1.domain.com & sub2.domain.com on the "new" server. However, you may run into problems if there is an account / DNS entry for domain.com.
