    Hello Everyone,

    I am trying to add an addon domain to one of my clients accounts.

    When I do, I get this error:
    Using nameservers with the following IPs: x.x.6.161,x.x.6.160 Sorry, the domain is already pointed to an IP address that does not appear to use DNS servers associated with this server. Please transfer the domain to this servers nameservers or have your administrator add one of its nameservers to /etc/ips.remotedns and make the proper A entries on that remote nameserver.

    We run our DNS server seperately from our hosting servers. Is this what is causing the problem? If so, how do I fix it?

    Assuming you only mean addon domains, not sub domains and assuming the NS are correct, use this workaround:
    WHM>>>tweak settings>>>>domains>>>Allow remote domains, set this to On, save and then add the Addon domain, then go back to WHM>>>tweak settings>>>>domains>>>Allow remote domains and turn it Off ( security risk)
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
