    Hello,

    i know it was spoken about many times here in forum and i also read the documentation but it is not 100% clear. I want a direct link setup.


    My setup (version 11.50):
    1 cPanel Webserver (cp1) and 2 cPanel DNS Only server (dns1, dns2)


    What I have done:
    1.) I go to the WHM webinterface of all 3 servers and enabled DNS Clustering on all three servers.
    2.) I go to the WHM webinterface of the cp1 server and configure a new server for the cluster.
    3.) I added dns1 and dns2 there and set the rule to "write Only" and set "setup Reverse trust rleationship"

    in the overview of the cp1 server there is now the dns path:
    cp1.xxx.xx
    -> dns1.xxx.xx
    -> dns2.xxx.xx


    Questions:
    is that all i must do? or must I configure anything (adding the cp1 or whatever) on the cPanel DNS Only server (dns1, dns2) also?

    Thanks for your help.

    Should I also disable the nameserver on cp1.xxx.xx?

    Hello :)

    Those are the only steps you are required to make (outside of setting up your name servers at the domain registrar and ensuring "A" records are added). You do not have to disable your name servers on the hosting server, though some users do choose to do so.

    Thank you.
