Multiserver setup/DNS mirrors
 
Hi,

I've been evaluating ISPConfig in the past weeks and I must say that so far I'm really impressed. It's a really good alternative to commercial panels!

However (and unfortunately), I have a problem with the mirroring feature. It seems more like a limitation than a bug but here the situation:

I'm running the following multi-server setup:
- web1: httpd + ftpd + sql + dns
- mail1: dovecot + postfix + amavisd + dns
- backup1: sql + dns

I want to use backup1 to mirror my databases and my DNS records, so I selected the "mirror of" web1 in the control panel and it works just fine.

Now, I would like to use the DNS server on mail1 as another mirror (so I can offer triple DNS redundancy to my customers). As soon as I set mail1 to be a mirror of web1, my mail server doesn't work anymore! I verified under System -> Server Services to make sure everything is set correctly... it is.

I understand that mail1 is trying to mirror the Mail feature of web1 (which doesn't exist)... but should it work anyway? Or is it a limitation? Maybe I'm missing something!

Thank you :)

Why not just use the dns on "mail1" to be a secondary dns, rather then a mirror.
