I have a VPS with LXADMIN Hostinabox single server and want to use this VPS as a secondary/slave DNS server. My primary/master DNS is hosted elsewhere.

Does the LXADMIN Hostinanox interface facilitate the ability to setup the secondary zone?

LXadmin Main Server - Best Way To Get My Secondary DNS Updated

Jun 27, 2008

Just moved to a lxadmin based system from my current plesk system and I have a dilema

Server 1: Main Web/CP/Primary DNS/Mail/etc
Server 2: Secondary DNS/Backup Mail forwarding

With Plesk I generated a transfer file from named.conf (plesk runs bind/named for dns) sent that over to server 2 a couple of times a day.

Problem is I've converted lxadmin to run with bind instead and named.conf only contains an include to lxadmin.named.conf and this is empty. So where does lxadmin put its conf files for named?

I'm not restricted to using named, I'd use djbdns if there was an equally simple way of transferring the zones across to server 2

Kloxo Vs LxAdmin ? (The New Face Of Lxadmin)

May 11, 2009

I rebuilt my VPS (again) today and noticed something different. Instead of the usual "Install LxAdmin" icon in HyperVM I read "Install Kloxo."

I looked at the demo and everything looked the same. Has anyone noticed any definite differences between the two? Has anything significant changed apart from the name?

Secondary DNS VPS

Dec 2, 2007

I signed up with cheapvps.co.uk a month ago, and I'm very happy with them . Now I'm looking for a very small VPS to host a secondary DNS server, and maybe a backup MX server.

It's just for personal use.

I think 5GB disk space would be enough, and I would like not to spend more than $10 USD/month. Do you know any VPS that suits my needs?

Automatic Secondary DNS

Mar 28, 2007

I have searched for setting up automatic secondary DNS, but couldn't find anything, if I missed it, please post a link

I have 2 VPS's one running cPanel/WHM with about 15 low traffic sites on it. The other is a very slow spec VPS, hopefully just for DNS services.

I only have 1 domain server running currently, this is on the same server as the all the websites, what I want is a secondary DNS mirroring that of the DNS on my cPanel VPS, automaitically....

I was thinking of writting a little script to scp all the .db files in /var/named/ to my secondary server, then login to the secondary server and restart BIND?

Secondary DNS Failover

Jul 22, 2008

What happens if your primary nameserver goes down? Meaning that it goes completely off the net, not even denying dns requests but completely ignoring them.

I'd guess that resolvers would query the secondary NS after a specified timeout, but what is that timeout set to? Does it differ from ISP to ISP? How much of a slowdown are we looking at for end users?

Offsite Secondary DNS

Jul 5, 2007

would it be possible to have my main box running apache, a second box for dns/other and an offsite secondary dns such as DNS1.PUBLIC-DNS.NET?

Is it possible to authenticate the primary and offsite secondary nameserver so the zone is transferred to the secondary? Would i need to pay for a special service, or do free ones exist? Are there any security implications with zone files being transferred out over the public internet, would a vpn need to be configured or can the process be encrypted via the transfer procedure?

Finally, how would this affect the way the entire virtual hosting works? I know when the nameserver on the host machine serves resolves a name request for a computer trying to browse the site in question, but when the actual http request goes to the web server does it incldue the domain it is looking at also?

Secondary Servers

Jul 29, 2007

I just ran into something about Secondary DNS services.

What exactly is that?

Is that where if my primary name server goes down, a secondary name server kicks in and resolves all my donmains to another server somewhere?

I've been thinking about getting setup with some kind of fail safe setup in case my primary name server goes down.

Would Secondary DNS services take care of that?

If so, anybody know where I can find a reliable, affordable secondary DNS service?

Secondary IP Addresses Malfunction

Apr 18, 2009

I got 4 IP from server.lu

A friend install windows 2008 on top of the vmware.

Then I noticed that the connection is not very right.

So I go to network connection in the hope of changing the DNS.

I just right click the connection and found out that I lost my connection to the server.

Restarting the server allow me to ssh and ping the main IP but none of the secondary IPs work.

One Secondary DNS Server For Two Primary

Apr 22, 2009

I have the following three servers, which I'll call A, B, and C:

Server A - Web hosting server that uses cPanel on CentOS.

Server B - Free subdomain service (similar to afraid.org but on a much smaller scale), using PowerDNS with a MySQL database backend, on Debian.

Server C - Backup DNS server for the cPanel web hosting server, using the free cPanel "DNS Only" on CentOS.

Originally I had just A and B set up (they're two separate VPSes on the one dedicated server, I own the dedi and some friends and I have VPSes on it). Now I've got a VPS at a different data centre, and am using that for C.

To have a secondary DNS server for server B, I believe I can use MySQL replication to replicate the PowerDNS database to another server, then have a PowerDNS install on that server. My question is, is it possible to have server C as a backup DNS server for both server A (cPanel server) and server B (PowerDNS server)? ie. is there a way to check both PowerDNS and the cPanel BIND9 for domains (have them on different ports, and make one query the other if the lookup fails, perhaps)? Or perhaps use both the MySQL backend and the bind backend simultaneously in PowerDNS, and replace bind with PowerDNS (although I guess cPanel wouldn't like this)?

Primary And Secondary Nameservers

Aug 14, 2007

I have two nameservers, each running physically on a different server on different networks. Now I've noticed that whenever the primary NS goes down, clients requesting authoritative NS record lookups refuse to connect to the secondary NS, which I know is certainly up and running. The secondary NS has its own zone files and when you specifically request that server to resolve NS requests, it does the work. But generic NS lookups without specifying the server appears to fail when the primary server is down.

Does anyone know what might be happening here? I know that the domain registrar has both nameservers recorded for the domains I'm trying to resolve, but what is the point of a secondary NS, when it isn't contacted when the primary nameserver is down?

Etc/resolv.conf - Secondary Ns

May 20, 2008

My sites all respond very slow (VPS) at the initial loading, that's why I try to check all dns settings.

Would I have an advantage if I add another and if so can I simply add my own nameservers?

Hosting Secondary Nameservers

Jun 13, 2007

I am developing a site for a new company that will run under a medical engineering firm. I'm currently the only employee and am setting up websites and graphics for the company, but working out of the same office as everyone else. We currently have a VPS through iPower to host our site on, and everything is dandy. However we only own one IP address on the VPS, and I want to be in charge of my secondary nameserver, as I will also eventually use it as a secondary MX server. I have never done this before so I have a few questions about it. My previous experience has all been graphic design and web design, not much on the hosting side of things.

1.Is it possible to run a server on a XP desktop just using Apache or similar software (and a dynamic DNS service)?

2. Would it be possible to run this through the company LAN and router to make it accessible via the web without any serious tinkering on their network? (it has to stay up, and I have no idea what kind of routers or firewalls they are using currently). Basically given the standard setup how hard is it to open up the ports on the router(s)? I've done this only on a home router before, so I assume it can't be much different.

3. How do you go about doing it?

DNS Servers Primary Secondary

Mar 22, 2007

clarification on DNS.

We currently have gps devices which report x,y coords. The devices currently report to a fully qualified name: servername.mydomain.com. And only one fully qualified name.

We would like to have redudancy, so if the main server goes down, then the secondary takes over. I assume this is accomblished via DNS.

So out first task is to create name servers at our domain registar and have them register them, for example:

ns1.mydomain.com -> FIRSTSERVERIP
ns2.mydomain.com -> SECONDSERVERIP

Then on the both servers we setup DNS to accept the a record of servename.mydomain.com points to? This is where I get confused. Does the firstserver DNS say point to itself, and the second DNS server point to itself?

Primary And Secondary Servers (web And Mail)

Jun 30, 2008

I have 2 servers 1 US and 1 UK.

What I wanna do is synchronize both of them using rsync. Once they've got synchronized, the UK will be the primary server and US will be secondary, in case the UK goes down.

my questions are

1. Is it possible that when the UK goes down, the A records for domain.com automatically switches to the US server so it can take over while UK is down.

ie. UK ip
US ip 222.111.444.5

domain.com A records = UK ip when up... but when UK is down, A records automatically changes to US ip.

2. And when the UK server goes up again, whatever changes made to US server will be pushed to UK. May it be files, accounts or e-mails.


UK and US are synchronized every 30mins. UK and US both have e-mails 1-10.

Just before the sync time, UK server received an e-mail 11-15 then goes down. So the US Server will take over but do not have 11-15 mails, since it was received before sync time. During the UK downtime, US server received e-mails 16-20.

When the UK server goes up, will it be possible to sync both servers that both of them will have the e-mails 1-20?

I hope you get my point...

If these are not feasible, what can you advice as an alternative solution. All I want is to avoid downtimes, especially with mails as the business relies on this.

How To Format, Mount A Secondary HDD As /backup

I have tried the cPanel tool to mount, format, etc. My drive however, it has made my server crash after reboots.

I have to enter single user and remove the lines added to fstab so it will boot.

I tried using the tool again and it failed yet again, can I do it manually, and if so how.

I will have to redo the entire partition, so how do I erase everything first?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: SOA-record Set To Secondary DNS

Mar 19, 2015

According to [URL] .... The SOA-record is set to the first NS-record set in Plesk.

I have noticed that new domains get my secondary DNS set as SOA.

I checked the DNS-template and there the correct nameserver is on top. Maybe the NS-record order is random or always swapped. I just noticed this.

If it's always swapped then I could give the authorative NS last in my template...

But why isn't it giving itself as authorative?

If Plesk is configured as master it also implies this, or am I missing something there? It could at least make sure it puts itself first.
