Establishing aTrust Relationship

Are there any instructions or tutorials out there for establishing a trust relationship with a non-cpanel server? My primary is Cpanel but my secondary is not Cpanel.

Also, I've got two secondary name servers, I would like to correct this.

With our registrar I have ns2.andhosting.com listed as the correct IP address (in a totally different block and another city). On the server itself, I have a local IP set for the second nameserver, so it actually uses that one from what I can tell.

Whenever I try to lookup ns2.andhosting.com on ipaddress.net, it gets an error. I'm scared to change the records to that IP address on the server because I don't want any downtime. Can someone more knowledgeable than me tell me if they think ns2.andhosting.com is up or not?

Thanks!

Thank you, but the secondary server does not have WHM or CPanel... it's only a nameserver, so there's no point in getting another license. I've heard you can have an automatic slave DNS without CPanel on the server.

Just setup the primary nameserver to send out notifies and have your secondary axfr additions/modifications, etc. You may also want to rsync/scp zone files and recreate named.conf once a day on the secondary.

I know, there are a few cron jobs I want to run on the 2nd server from the 1st server to do this, but I think you need a trust relationship to run a remote cron job, don't you?

I still have to add records to my 2nd nameserver manually because it isn't a CPanel server. How can I make this automatic?

I have a solution. I have a shell script run by a crontab that pulls the latest recorsd from the named.conf file on master and inserts them into a named.conf-slave file on the ns2 which is then included in the named.conf file on ns2.

The script also changes the required settings in each record.

if anyone's intersted in thsi script, I'll post it here.

The script works perfectly, but for some reason NS2 can't get the records from NS1 once they're in the named.conf file. I have allow-transfer set to 'all' on th eprimary, what else could be the problem?

No, it's a stripped down version of WHM intended for that purpose only (DNS Clustering). It is FREE.
