I'm stumped.

I've installed CPANEL on a Linux Fedora platform, given it it's own domain, separate from my existing domains (geekoids-webhosting.com), and DNS just doesn't seem to be propagating. If I run a nslookup of www.geekoids-webhosting.com or www.spayinc.org (the two domains currently hosted by the server), nothing is returned ... or rather, a 'no server could be reached' error is returned. (If I do this on the cpanel server, it *does* return the correct information)

The cpanel server is acting as the nameserver and the IP is registered as ns.geekoids-webhosting.com through Dotster.

Additionally, I've set up another server to act as ns2.geekoids-webhosting.com and installed DNS-ONLY. I can't for the life of me figure out how to incorporate it into the clustered DNS that cpanel seems to want. When I go to set up the cluster, the form wants the rhash and gives me a link to click on to collect it from the target server - except that link times out. I have no idea if DNS-ONLY is running properly because there seems to be a paucity of documention regarding the product.

Any suggestions would be helpful. This migration is turning out to be a bleeping disaster.

I'm nuking the server and reinstalling from scratch. If I can't resolve it on this install, I'll find another solution.

Did I mention how effing FRUSTRATED I am about this?

If you have any requests that are urgent in the future, you may want to submit a support ticket to your cPanel licensing provider rather than post a message to the community forums.

Hi,

It seems one of the nameserver you are using on the domains is timing out so you should have a look into it.

ns2.geekoids-webhosting.com [68.178.108.161]
