    Hello dear friends.

    My situation.

    Server 1 has 3 Ip adresses runs directadmin
    This host my main nameservers ns1.name.com and ns2.name.com

    Server 2 has 1 IP adress and runs cPanel.
    I want when server 2 adds a domain Zones at Server1 are updated.

    So i don't have to add every domain manually.

    is this a feature or am i at the wrong forums :P
    I just transferd one server to cpanel since many of my customers wanted cpanel

    Is this possible??

    Kind Regards

    cPanel DNS Clustering will only work with cPanel/WHM and cPanel DNSONLY.

    so basicly to get my nameservers running i need to install cpanel on my directadim server to hehe there goes an extra lincense :P
    Guess it's cheaper to just ad 2 more ip adresses.

    Thanks for the information.

    Actually, cPanel DNSONLY doesn't require licensing. However, we do not test cPanel DNSONLY against DirectAdmin environments.

    What David didn't mention is that Cpanel's DNS clustering isn't a true clustering but rather more of a rsync type "replication" and subsequently only works in association with other Cpanel based servers.

    While I myself personally could setup a DNS cluster between any type of server irregardless, I really would not recommend anyone trying to do that just simply because I know what kind of problems, extra work, and maintenance headaches that you will cause for yourself attempting to cross connect different environments like that. Even though you are talking about DNS where "bind" is mostly the same, there are still some subtle differences especially in zone templates and folder layouts, etc.

    My advice and recommendation would be for you to standardize on a single hosting platform and have all your servers use the same system and this is a good idea for a great many reasons.

    Your existing servers can actually be converted over to Cpanel and that is also something that I have a great deal of experience doing. I would be glad to give you a helping had if you wanted to just try to make everything all Cpanel based.
