    Hello.
    I have two new servers with whm each.
    I also have the possibility to use 4 public IP.
    My question is: Shall i use two IP for each Hostname and the other two IP for each name server? Or is it better to use the same ip for a host and a name server, and a second ip for the other host and the other name server?


    Option1:
    srv01.myhost.com IP1
    srv02.myhost.com IP2

    ns1.myhost.com IP3
    ns2.myhost.com IP4

    Option2:
    srv01.myhost.com IP1
    srv02.myhost.com IP2

    ns1.myhost.com IP1
    ns2.myhost.com IP2

    A last question, is it important to add an A entry for the hostnames and the name servers?

    Hello,

    I recommend using this option, as otherwise you'd have to setup DNS clustering between two servers used for hosting (clustering isn't recommended in a two-way sync setup).

    Yes.

    Thanks!

    Solved.
    So i'll start with the initial_setup_wizard using option 2 and adding A Registers in Step4 for the three componentes (hostname, nameserver1 and nameserver2).

    Thank you, for helping me.
