I´m actually trying to setup my first unmanged vps server. Since i know whm/cpanel since some years on sveral managed servers it´s no question to use it for the testserver too.

All seems to be fine. I made own dns servers with 2 extra ips.

Actually i get this error message if i try to add a new addon domain

Using nameservers with the following IPs:, Sorry, the domain is already pointed to an IP address that does not appear to use DNS servers associated with this server. Please transfer the domain to this servers nameservers or have your administrator add one of its nameservers to /etc/ips.remotedns and make
the proper A entries on that remote nameserver.
Ia this still a DNS propagation thing ?

I triple checked the ip addresses i added on the whm initial setup, the nameservers and added the right ones to the domains that i try to add too.

Maybe someone can help - Many Thanks D

1) Login in root WHM and Navigate to:
Home >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings >> Domains >> Allow Remote Domains >> Set this option to ON

2) Now add your addon domain name.

3) After adding addon domain name set Allow Remote Domains to Off.

It is highly recommended to keep Allow Remote Domains to off for security reason.
