    just upgraded the server to latest soft ware with this info:
    dell dual xeon server with the following software
    WHM 9.1.0
    cPanel 9.1.0-S73
    RedHat 9
    WHM X v2.1.2

    my ips:

    when the update finsihed i entered the first time in whm asked me to input ns1, ns2 and ns3 ips.
    I gave ns1 a ip4? and ns2 ip5? and ns3 empty field.

    so i started the update manualy again from cpanel.
    again I did this 2 or 3 times because of imap failure I gave up wrong ips again.
    Then I noticed at ev1server member section ns1 is at ip1 and not ip4? and ns2 is at ip2 and not ip5?.
    ip5? has something like name in it at members section?

    so I went manual editting the files below and the changes are still there the look like this:

    pico /etc/nameserverips
    ip1=NS1.domain.COM (manual changed from ip4? to ip1)
    ip2=NS2.domain.COM (manual changed from ip5? to ip2)

    pico /etc/wwwacct.conf
    ADDR ip1 <<standard ip1 is this oke?
    AIMPASS removed
    AIMUSER removed
    CONTACTAIM removed
    CONTACTEMAIL myemail
    CONTACTPAGER removed
    CONTACTUIN removed
    DEFMOD x
    FTPTYPE proftpd
    HOMEDIR /home
    HOMEMATCH home
    HOST hostname
    ICQPASS removed
    ICQUSER removed
    LOGSTYLE combined
    NS NS1.domain.COM
    NS2 NS2.domain.COM

    pico /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver ip1 (manual changed from ip4? to ip1)
    nameserver ip2 (manual changed from ip5? to ip2)

    I searched the forums everything is looking how it's supposed to be but wen I enter WHN I go to:
    Server Setup
    Edit Setup
    Primary Nameserver: ns1 with the ip4? and not ip1
    Secondary Nameserver:ns2 with the ip5? and not ip2

    how to solve this??
    but my sites are working??

    Any help and information would be greatfull!
