    Hi,

    Quick Questions. My plan looks like this.
    Current server set up:
    hostname=server.mydomainname.com
    Nameservers NS1.mydomainname.com and NS2.mydomainname.com

    New server set up:
    hostname alpha.mydomainname.com
    Nameservers NS3.mydomainname.com and NS4.mydomainname.com

    Wanting to transfer accounts from one "live" server to another will the Hostname and or nameservers on the "new" server cause any DNS issues with the accounts on the "old" server. this is just a FYI question for me. does it matter if mydomainname.com is hosted on any server?

    Thanks
    Frank

    Are the two servers clustered together or are they each running independent of each other?

    It does matter which server has mydomainname.com on it if the servers aren't in a cluster, since you'll need to ensure that any change for the location of that domain is properly handled in the right DNS zone. Also, you'll need to ensure all nameservers are configured in that DNS zone for mydomainname.com
