    I have 3 standalone DNS servers that I have setup as clusters on my main WHM server. I have disabled 1 DNS server, that leaves me to 2 working servers.

    I had a lot of domains using those 3 nameservers and I can't change all of them. I want to replace the IP of the removed DNS server with the WHM's server shared IP.

    Is removing the DNS server in the cluster the only step I should perform?

    *Yes, I need to replace my IPs with the domain registrar, let's skip this step for this discussion. I want to know if there are other necessary steps to do with WHM.

    Hello :)

    You would need to ensure the accounts are configured on the correct IP addresses on the hosting server. Then, when you synchronize the changes to the DNS-Only servers, the zones will update to reflect the recent changes.

    Thank you.
