    Hi There,

    Quick question...

    I *had* 1x cPanel server with 2x DNS Only servers to run as secondary/ teritary DNS/ Mail.

    All of the boxes are physically seperate and geographically sparse.

    Now I've just bought a new server that will be another cPanel server.

    Can I add this to the cluster so that the 2x DNS only servers will serve as secondary/ teritary (and still look after the primary box), or does dns only not play nice in multi-server environments?

    I cant see there being an issue as they are seperate zones/ keys.etc - but thought to ask just in case.

    You can add as many machines as you would like to cluster to your cPanel DNS only machines. That's the entire purpose of the DNS only machines to handle multiple servers in the cluster for the DNS zones.
