    Hi,

    If I add a new Nameserver, is there a way to add this nameserver to all existing user accounts' zone files?

    Left side menu within WHM, under DNS Functions, click on "Edit DNS Zone". From there you can add the nameserver records zone by zone. I don't know of a way to add these nameservers records to multiple already existing DNS zones within WHM. I don't believe cpanel has coded that functionality. However, you could write a script to append these records to each zone file within /var/named.

    Was hoping to avoid that - oh well... doesn't look too daunting...

    Are there any SSH script guru's here that are probably able to help you?
