    I spent a few time setting secondary DNS on my CPanel server,
    the way to make it work is here: http://support.cpanel.net/obb/read.php?TID=1753


    But i have problem with syncronization,
    my main dns server have zone files located at:

    /var/named/run-root/var/
    (is a PSA server)

    After syncronization, Cpanel only update named.conf with all zones from 1st server, but it - don't download zone files -

    And clicking on Edit a DNS Zone, shows &zones& that is really content located on main server at dir:

    /var/named/

    It show directory: run-root as &zone&

    The problem is directory where secondary server looks for zone files. Where this dir is set?

    done

    I have found a temp solution,

    1.- have copied manually named.root copy on /var/named dir (at secondary server)

    2.- transfered named.conf with &Synchronize DNS Records With Primary Nameserver& option

    3.- then had to edit /etc/named.conf on secondary and put correct directory in options to make named able to find named.root

    options {
    directory &/var&;

    changed to cpanel/whm correct dir:

    options {
    directory &/var/named&;


    4.- then manually restart named
    /etc/init.d/named restart

    and it get all zone files from primary server and named finally starts correctly.

    --

    for next syncronizations points 2 / 3 / 4 are needed. &- If there is new zones added on primary

    Only a /etc/init.d/named restart from shell if there aren't new zones, only if some zone file have been modified.
