Exclamation Reciprocal DNS for multi-server environment?

I have two servers in a multi server environment.

They are both setup identically with this guide:

However, I want server 1 to act as secondary DNS for the server 2 and server 2 to act a secondary for server 1.

How is that accomplished? If I make server 2 a mirror of server 1 it will duplicate the websites as well. I just want reciprocal DNS.
Is there a way to do this within ISPCONFIG? or just the old fashioned way?

Normally you could do this in ispconfig automatically, but your setup is not ideal for that as it requires separate dns servers like it is described in the multiserver tutorial.

In your case, you have to add a primary dns record in ispconfg on server one and a secondary dns record (slave zone) in ispconfig on server 2.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
