    Recently an update was accomplished.
    My WHM and Cpanel Version is now: WHM 9.9.9 cPanel 9.9.9-R14

    If I look at in /etc/resolv.conf, I see there the following

    nameserver 1.2.3.101 (ip from Datacenter)
    nameserver 1.2.3.102 (ip from Datacenter)


    Can I change now easily as follows resolv.conf in such a way? :confused:

    domain mydomain.com
    search mydomain.com
    nameserver 127.0.0.1
    nameserver "ip from ns1.mydomain.com"
    nameserver "ip from ns2.mydomain.com"

    Thanks

    You can change it by editing /etc/resolv.conf and restarting Bind/Named. One difference would be to not use 127.0.0.1 but instead use the main/virtual IP of your server.

    domain mydomain.com
    search mydomain.com
    nameserver "main ip from Server"
    nameserver "ip from ns1.mydomain.com"
    nameserver "ip from ns2.mydomain.com"

    Yes and in some cases the first name server may actaully be the main/virtual IP.

    My server situation is so


    My
    Server/Host-name: host.myserver.com
    Main IP is 111.111.111.111

    I have a 4 Reseller Accounts:

    1. Reselleraccount: (it is my)
    myserver.com
    with
    ns1.myserver.com 111.111.111.112
    ns2.myserver.com 111.111.111.113

    2. Reselleraccount:
    resaccount.com
    with
    ns1.resaccount.com 111.111.111.111 (Server Main IP)
    ns2.resaccount.com 111.111.111.114

    3. Reselleraccount:
    resaccount2.com
    with
    ns1.resaccount2.com 111.111.111.115
    ns2.resaccount2.com 111.111.111.116

    Please Help.

    I got this morning this email.


    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname (host.myserver.com) resolves to 111.111.111.112. It should resolve to 111.111.111.111. Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain.

    Some are all of these problems can be caused by /etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly. Please check this file if you believe everything else is correct.

    You may be able to automaticly correct this problem by using the ' Add an A entry for your hostname ' under ' Dns Functions ' in your Web Host Manager


    My server situation is so

    Server/Host-name: host.myserver.com
    Main IP is 111.111.111.111

    I have a 4 Reseller Accounts:

    1. Reselleraccount: (it is my)
    myserver.com
    with
    ns1.myserver.com 111.111.111.112
    ns2.myserver.com 111.111.111.113

    2. Reselleraccount (Customer account):
    resaccount.com
    with
    ns1.resaccount.com 111.111.111.111 (Server Main IP)
    ns2.resaccount.com 111.111.111.114





    How can I solve this problem?

    Does it have this IP address „111.111.111.111“ ns1 of the server?

    Can I solve it e.g. in such a way?
    I change nameserver ip ns1.resaccount.com to another IP, and following I make this MAIN IP 111.111.111.111 to a ns3.myserver.com

    Would that be clean solution?
