How Do I Put Several DNS Servers On One Box?

You can have more than one DNS servers on one box. However, if you'd like to put your DNS servers on more than one box, you need to put each of them on a separate box.

To configure multiple DNS servers on one physical box, see Single DNS Confiruration in Sysadmin Guide.

 

How do I assign master and slave roles to DNS logical servers?

  1. Go to E.Manager -> Servers -> L.Servers.
  2. Click DNS logical server name. You'll be taken to its configuration page. At the bottom of the page you'll see the Additional options form:



  3. From the DNS role drop-down box choose either master or slave1 or slave2.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the rest of your DNS logical servers.

If DNS logical servers are not assigned any roles or more than one DNS logical servers are assigned the same role (e.g. two master or two slave1 servers), H-Sphere will randomly assign "master" to one of them and address another one as "slave". In this case it's quite likely that the same DNS logical server will have different roles for different DNS zones.

 

How do I limit resellers to particular DNS logical servers?

  1. Go to E.Manager -> Servers -> L.Servers.
  2. Click DNS logical server name. You'll be taken to its configuration page. At the bottom of the page you'll see the Additional options form:



  3. From the Used by drop-down box choose:
    • all accounts to allow both regular and reseller customer accounts to use this DNS logical server;
    • resellers only to allow only reseller end customer accounts to use this DNS logical server;
    • master admin only to allow only your regular customer accounts to use this DNS logical server.
Important: if all DNS logical servers are used by the same group, signups from under the other group will fail.
