    Hi,

    We have a Cpanel WHM server which is configured with two DNS-only cpanel server.

    Web server
    |
    ____|______
    | |
    ns1 ns2


    My question is I want to add a second webserver and use the existing DNS-Only nameserver ns1/ns2 as the DNS servers. Is it possible ? We have lot of websites as well as DNS records currently in ns1/ns2 so if we configure the second webserver to use ns1/ns2 will it wipe of the current DNS zones ? How does it work. ?

    Hello :)

    Yes, this is acceptable, and no it won't remove the existing zones. Simply configure the cluster settings for the additional web server the same way you configured the first one. Note that it's important for both servers to have the same administrator because you will be able to see the zones from one web server on another.

    Thank you.
