    When setting up a new cPanel server, if you enter external dns servers, how does the zone information on the new server get updated on the external dns servers? (Assuming the external DNS servers consist of a cPanel DNS cluster)

    eg.

    cPanel Server 1 - ns1 (part of DNS cluster)
    cPanel Server 2 - ns2 (part of DNS cluster)
    cPanel Server 3 - ns3 (part of DNC cluster)
    cPanel Server 4 - Not part of the DNS cluster but uses the DNS Cluster

    Let's say we now set up some accounts on Server 4, how does the zone info get added to the cluster?

    By " Not part of the DNS cluster but uses the DNS Cluster" do you mean that it just sends DNS information to the DNS cluster but doesn't host the DNS zones itself, correct?

    If that's the case, all you need to do is have that server be part of the cluster and set it up to send the zone files but not receive any zones from the cluster.

    Then cPanel/WHM will automatically send any updated zone information to the cluster to keep those records updated.

    Thanks David

    That's exactly what I needed to know.
