Remote Nameservers



  • mdsj
    Ok, I've got a route to my new server by manually adding a DNS Zone on server1 for the new domain on server2, but things are not right still as I now get the following error when sorting out DKIM and SPF. In order to ensure that SPF or DKIM takes effect, you must confirm that this server is an authoritative nameserver for domain.x. If you need help, contact your hosting provider. So although I have a fix in place, things are still not as they should be, which makes me think I've not set things up correctly.

    If name services for the domain(s) in the 2nd server are hosted in the 1st server, then all the DNS zones must be in the 1st server. In that case the DNS zones in the 2nd server have no effect whatsoever.

    Hello :) Is there any reason why you prefer not to run the name server on the second cPanel server? You could simply setup "NS3" and "NS4" name servers at the registrar and use the IP address of the second server. Otherwise, you may want to consider setting up a new cPanel DNS-Only machine and using it to handle the DNS for all of your hosting servers. Thank you.
