DNS Management / DNS server

How to setup a DNS Cluster

If you are looking for the options to minimize DNS-related downtime or the way to manage dns across all server you have, you might consider to set up dns cluster.

  1. Create user dns-cluster on a server which will be used as dns slave
  2. Run following command on a master
v-add-remote-dns-host slave.yourhost.com 8083 admin p4sw0rd

Password and host name should be replaced with relevant data of course.

Alternatively you can run on the slave server the following command

v-generate-api-key

This will generate an API key. Replace the username "admin" with the generated key. This will keep the ability to change the admin password without issues in the future.

v-add-remote-dns-host slave.yourhost.com 8083 api_key

This way you can set up master->slave or master-master-master cluster. There is no limitation on how to chain dns servers.

Can I seperate DNS accounts by users

Yes you can just supply the user varibale behind the command.

v-add-remote-dns-host slave.yourhost.com 8083 admin p4sw0rd useraccount

Or


v-add-remote-dns-host slave.yourhost.com 8083 api_key '' useraccount
