    Is there a how-to anywhere on how to switch a group of servers using DNS master-slave trust relationship set up in cpanel to a cluster?

    I've looked at http://www.cpanel.net/docs/dnsclustering-quickstart/ already, and while it's pretty clear, it doesn't say anything about what would happen if you already had a trust relationship set up.


    Any information on this topic would be helpful.

    I did it.

    I just set up the clustering as described and then went to each server that used to be a slave and removed the ip of master from the Master Nameserver field in the setup options. I have been running that way for about 2 weeks with no problems.

    I am going to profess dumbness here on this one. I have been toying DNS Clustering for a few hours and have about had it.

    Granted maybe it is I want it to work a certain way and it doesn't do it the way I want. :)

    I am starting with just 3 servers:

    dns1.dnsshed.com
    dns2.dnsshed.com

    dns1 is the pure dnsonly CP install. dns2 is a current full CP deployment.

    pinckney.dnsshed.com is another full CP deployment.

    What I want to do is be able to add accounts to pinckney and have the DNS Zones created on dns1 whoch would then propagate to dns2.

    Once I get that working all our other CP servers will create accounts per pinckney and we will add dns3.

    Is this how DarkOrb intended this to work? Do I need all servers in the cluster? or just dns1-3? What do I need to do on the "reporting" servers to make them send to the primary (dns1)?

    Clearly I am missing some important aspect of understanding!
