    I have recently setup DNS clustering between 2 machines.

    My question is, am I able to make a page come up saying "Website currently not available" or something of that nature rather then "Unable to connect" popup message when one of the servers are down?


    Any help on this is great.

    Thanks.

    Not really. You'd need to use a dynamic IP service for something like that since any DNS changes take time to propagate.

    What were doing is placing secondary name servers (ns2.domain.com) to the 2nd server. If the primary server goes down we want the 2nd server to show a page that says "Website Unavailable".

    I understood that, my answer still stands.
