DNS Creator is a utility that re-creates DNS data to new DNS servers. Use this utility to republish DNS data to a different box or add an extra DNS server.

To create DNS:

  1. Log into your control panel server as the cpanel user.

  2. Run DNS Creator:
  3. java -m creation_method [-dz] [-z zonename]

    -m  creation method. Possible values: db or rand
       db   - pick NS servers as they are defined in the H-Sphere database
       rand   - pick NS servers randomly
    -dz|--delete_zones   - delete zones first. Add this option only if such zones already exist. With this option, DNS creation will take at least twice more time.
    -lids|--logical-servers  - process zones which are on the logical servers with the specified IDs.
    -pip|--pServerIP  - specifies a physical server by its primary IP. All necessary logical server IDs are chosen automatically. Often -pip is used as an alternative to -lids.
    -z|--zone   - recreate only one specified zone. Without this option, all zones will be recreated.
    Note: If both lids and -z parameters are specified, the -z parameter will be ignored.

Note: If you are adding an extra DNS server, specify -m rand or else this new DNS server will be available only for new signups.

Please be patient. If you have hundreds of domains, this utility might take hours to execute.
