Using ELevate on a DNSOnly server in a DNS cluster

    Hey there!  It might be best to remove it just so the rest of the cluster members don't see it as being offline, but I can't think of a reason you'd *have* to remove it.

    I'd be interested in hearing how your ELevate goes.  We're planning on doing the same thing with our DNS cluster over several weekends.

    ffeingol, We don't have anything scheduled yet, but I would expect it to happen in the next couple of weeks. I'll try to remember to circle back and update this post with how it went.

    Yes, it's recommended to remove the server from the DNS clustering before upgrading it to AlmaLinux 8. This ensures that there are no conflicts or issues during the upgrade process. Once the upgrade is completed successfully, you can then add the server back to the DNS clustering.

    ffeingol I'm not sure if you've already tried this, but it worked perfectly for us when I ran the scripts. I cleaned up any blockers that the script reported and removed the server from the cluster. When I was done I added it back to the cluster and everything was as it was before, just running on AlmaLinux 8. Hopefully your experience is the same.

    I've recently done this exact process and everything it's working fine. I've done this on a OVH VPS (I didn't expected to work fine on a VPS, so it's a very welcomed surprise).

    I didn't disconnect from the Cluster before.

    After correcting the brokers, I upgraded and I have problems in part 4.

    The system was updated to almalinux but in the middle of the process the system lost network connection and the process was interrupted.

    I did this in a clone of a cpanel dns, and at the moment I am unable to resolve names. It's a VPS, I lost SSH access. But I still have the console. Via the console I can ping ips, but names do not ping at all. I spent a few hours trying to fix it, without success.

    Any suggestion?

    NetworkManager seems to not want to receive a valid dns. /etc/resolv.conf is not recognized.

    Thanks.

    It's a DNS only server, recycle it from scratch. You will take 5 minutes to configure it again, don't lost your time hehe.

    Thanks for your answer, if it was just DNS I would have done that. I used DNs just as an example, lol. ahahahaha. I have other cPanel to do, and I wanted to see how Elevate would work. First test and it didn't work.

    I'm considering making the cpanel servers from scratch too, and migrating the accounts. Unfortunately, despite the good work that has been done on Elevate, it leaves questions, and I can't risk it.

    Ah hehe. I'm done also many servers from scratch and restore backups, elevate it's a risky operation and even more when you don't control the boot system
