    I have 1 server at ev1 with our domain on it and ns1 and ns2.ourdomain.com goes there.

    then we have ns3 and ns4.ourdomain.com set up to the new server at managed.

    on server 1 we have cpanel.ourdomain.com and server 2 is cpanel2.ourdomain.com

    I set up the cluster which set up a trust relationship between them.

    Everytime I start WHM on server 2 i get the message...

    PHP:
    The server was unable to lookup an an A entry for its hostname (cpanel2.ourdomain.com). This is generally because the entry was never addedHowever this could also be the result of your nameserver(sbeing down. If you would like to attempt to automaticlly add the entry
    I click the button which says click here and i get...

    PHP:
    Found your hostname to becpanel2.ourdomain.com 
    Found your short hostname to be
    cpanel2 
    Found your domain name to be
    ourdomain.com 
    Found your main ip to be
    XX.XX.XXX.XX 
    If this looks correct
    I click ok and it sets up the zone file for it. But shouldnt this info be towards server1 which hosts the actual domain name????

    Any help would be appreciated.

    BTW websites work fine but no mail gets thru which appears to be the only issue so far.
