DNS Nameserver Redundancy
DNS Nameserver Redundancy
Ok, so I went ahead and got the DNS Server on the Sentora panel's host setup and working well. The next step is getting the slave server setup (I'm running it on Debian 7 using Bind), but am getting confused at how exactly to do this/approach this. As I'm understanding it, each domain that has a record gets its own zone file in /etc/sentora/configs/bind/zones, right? And the purpose of a slave server is to individually pull records for each of those zones if they should update on the master server, right? Well, here's my question.... how do I tell Sentora to create those zone files on the Secondary DNS Server automatically? Is there a config setting or a module to do that automatically in/through the panel itself? If not, are there plans to add one/create one anytime soon? This should really be a key feature in Sentora - if nameserver redundancy is needed, then it should be made as easy as possible to do through the panel for either one or multiple slave servers (in my case, I got one in Dallas and one in LA, for a combined cost of about $5-$7 a month for a total of 3 nameservers).

As far as it not being included because people should just use their registrar's nameservers, I can think of 3 good counter-arguments for that one - 1, people like me that want to/are trying to learn about it, 2, companies that might want to use Sentora internally and 3, it'd help make Sentora more attractive to webhosts that provide nameservers as part of their service. Afaik, WHM and cPanel have this feature readily available.


(I realize that that could be taken as bashing/flaming/inciting, it's not meant to be. Just a suggestion and some reasoning if this feature doesn't exist is all Wink)
