    At shell, I run this command on my nameservers and get an error..

    root@ns [~]# nslookup ns.mydnsserver.net

    Server: 66.19.15.11
    Address: 66.19.15.11

    ** server can't find ns.mydnsserver.net: NXDOMAIN


    Does anyone else with CPanel get this error? What does this mean?

    your nameserver hostname isn't resolving from your nameserver.
    :)

    use /scripts/adddns to add the record for your nameserver host to your nameserver so it can resolve itself.

    it isn't a huge deal actually, but you should definitely have your nameserver hostnames resolving to the globe, for sanity's sake.

    (make sure you reload named after you add that record)
