    Did I get this right?

    I have two servers. I just added one nameserver to each machine.

    server one: dns1.domain.com
    server two: dns2.domain.com

    I use one server for support and billing. The other is for domains.

    I have assigned one IP to each nameserver on each machine. I established the trust relationship by using the keys from machine to machine.

    I synced the servers to each other.

    Have i done this right?
    Should I have done 2 on each machine?
    Will it sync automatically or do I need to do some sort of crom job?
    If one machine goes down I should still have DNS right?
    How can I make sure they are actually syncing?
    Where can I see a list of all the entries on the name server?

    Any advice?

    Never mind .... I figured this out. I had to create the nameservers, assign ip's, create the trust relationship and the one i missed ..... go back and choose syncronize changes under cluster in both servers WHM.

    The server load did spike to 6.0 on the first sync but it's back to normal.

    Do dns1.domainname.com on one server and dns2.domainname.com on the other syncing as accounts are added. DNS redundancy so if one server goes offline at least the nameservers will be active and mail will be qued. If your dns goes down completly most mail servers will bounce your mail not que it.
