    Hi fellow cpanel users,

    I am fairly new with managing my own servers, but i have the following problem:

    I would like to host a couple of domains on 2 servers, should i server go down, the domain will then be working on the other server.

    I have setup nameservers on both servers (ns1 + ns2 for 1 server and ns3 + ns4 on other server).

    I have setup the domain on both servers including the nameservers ns1 - ns4 in the dns of that domain, but my registar (co.za) are not seeing the dns nameservers on the second server (i have setup the ns on both the same way with ns1 - ns4 in the domain dns).

    Did i miss anything? cause i cant update the domain at my registrar due to the following errors:

    Code:
    Provided Nameserver information
    Primary Server  : ns1.thedomain.info 
    Secondary 1     : ns2.thedomain.info 
    Secondary 2     : ns3.thedomain.info 
    Secondary 3     : ns4.thedomains.info 
    
    Domain "thedomain.co.za", SOA Ref (2010070800), Orig "ns1.thedomain.info."
    Pre-existing Nameservers for "thedomain.co.za":- ns1.thedomain.info.
    ns2.thedomain.info.
