    I have one server at ev1 and one at the planet. I want to buy a new one from softlayer and transfer all those customers onto the new one.

    One old servers nameservers are ns5.whatever.com and ns6.whatever.com. The second old server is ns7.whatever.com and ns8.whatever.com.

    Now when I setup my customers domains along time ago they only had the two nameservers. Either ns5 and 6 or ns7 and 8.

    My question is how can I setup ns5, 6 , 7 and 8 on one new server so my customers do not see any downtime or is this even possible?

    Thanks alot.

    Follow a guide for transferring the accounts. I recommend this one:

    Lets say your nameservers are like this now:
    Server 1:
    ns5.whatever.com => 1.1.1.1
    ns6.whatever.com => 2.2.2.2
    Server 2:
    ns7.whatever.com => 3.3.3.3
    ns8.whatever.com => 4.4.4.4


    Now you have server 3 with ip addresses 5.5.5.5 and 6.6.6.6 - you can point multiple nameservers to a single IP address, so you can do it like this:
    ns5.whatever.com => 5.5.5.5
    ns6.whatever.com => 6.6.6.6
    ns7.whatever.com => 5.5.5.5
    ns8.whatever.com => 6.6.6.6
