    Hi,

    I have basic questions because I do not understand the cpanel's documentation. In addition it doesn’t work for me so that I would like to check the config with you. Please do not give me a link but answer « ok or false ».

    I would like to set up a dns only server (VPS) as slave secondary dns. Dedicated servers are on CENTOS 6.5 x86_64 standard – ns2…….. WHM 11.44.1 (build 18)

    Is it ok for the dedicated server to be config like that :
    Configuration cluster (left menu): server :ip vps / user : root / Remote access key : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    DNS cluster (left menu):
    Modify Cluster Status : Enable DNS clustering.
    Below Add a new server: Hostname vps / IP adress : vps / Type : Cpanel / Status : v green / DNS role (standalone) -> I’m confused here (which server you’re talking about with this sentence on WHM: « All changes made on this server…. » - the dedicated server or the vps ?
    DNS Path Diagram : ns……………….eu (Is it normal we see only the ip of the main dedicated server ? )
    Remote Access Key (left menu) : key of the vps

    it ok for the vps dnsonly server to be config like that :

    no configuration cluster left menu?
    DNS cluster (left menu):
    Modify Cluster Status : Enable DNS clustering.
    Below Add a new server: Hostname dedicated server / IP adress : dedicated server / Type : Cpanel / Status : v green / DNS role (Synchronize Changes) -> I’m confused here (which server you’re talking about with this sentence on DNSonly: « All changes made on this server…. » - the dedicated server or the vps ?
    DNS Path Diagram : vps…...net ↳ ns……….eu (is it normal the direction of the arrow)
    Remote Access Key (left menu) : key of the vps


    Thanks for your help

    Hello :)

    The DNS role is always configured from the standpoint of "From The Local Server, To The Destination Server". EX:

    It's normal to see the interface detect the IP address based on the hostname you provided.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    In dnsonly window goto : Add a new server to the cluster
    Then you have a line regarding the main server and a place (drop menu) where you can change the role standalone / synx/….
    When I change the dropmenu, it (the slave dns server) returns the lines
    «
    The new role for ip master server is sync.
    Return to Cluster Status
    «
    In the master server, in the same window, i put (ip vps) and (standalone)
    Ist that correct?
    Anyway it seems it doesn’t work.
    It’s a vps 2 vCores RAM 2 Gio Disk 25G
    Is that ok for you?
    Vps was added in the master and registrar.
    Any hints to debug that?
    I will chek if there are somme limitations with this kind of vps
    Thanks for your help

    You configured it incorrectly based on your last response. Access the hosting server via WHM, browse to the cluster configuration page, and set the role to "Synchronize Changes" when adding the new server. Use "Standalone" as the role when adding the server through WHM on the DNS-Only machine.

    Thank you.
