Redundant Server for Directadmin

anlicoranlicor Member

Lets say you have 2 servers both running Directadmin.

Server1 Hostname: server1.domain.com, ns1.domain.com, ns2.domain.com
Server2 Hostname: server2.domain.com, ns3.domain.com, ns4.domain.com

1) What would be the correct DNS settings to have the second server act as a fail over should the first server go down?

2) What would be the DNS settings be for load balancing?

    Well the first thing you need to think about, how do you plan to replicate the data from server 1 to server 2 in real time?

    I'm not worried about that yet, assume it doesn't need to be replicated in real-time, I just want to know the correct nameserver setup.

  • If they are both DA servers use Multi Server option for the DNS servers. Then you will only have ns1 and ns2 serving both server1 and server2
