    Hi,

    I've done a search but haven't found anything that seems to deal with my specific request. I have one box running cPanel (let's call it srv1) which hosts DNS for itself. I'm setting up a new server, srv2, and would like it, instead of (or in addition to) running its own DNS servers, to be able to store and update its DNS records on srv1. (At some point soon, I hope to have srv1 make use of DNS clustering with some other servers elsewhere in the world, but for now this isn't an issue.) Is this possible to do with WHM? I can't find anything clear that tells me it is.

    Thanks very much,

    Well, as far as I undestood, you do want DNS clustering between srv1 and srv2.
    In the moment you modify a DNS record on srv1, it is replicated on srv2, too.

    This is pretty straightforward presented in cPanel and should work from the very first try.
