    how to join an existing MyDNSConfig multiserver setup?


    I have installed MyDNSConfig on two different server.
    I have intelled both like described in Installing MyDNS-NG & MyDNSConfig 3 On Debian Lenny.

    On the second server I chose expert mode and the installation now asks for credentials for the master server.

    But I always get the message:
    Do I have to configure the master server differently. e.g. do I have to allow special rights for the mysql server?

    Never mind!
    It was a problem with the firewall.
    Everything now working. :)

    Most DNS services will let you configure a domain to be a slave. This means that they pull the zone (dns records) from a master.You can run the master server on one of your boxes, and have your DNS provider pull it to keep it in sync. The master would actually send update notifications when you make a changeTechnically, this would require you to run a DNS server, but it would not have to be a production server. It could be setup so that all of the public DNS queries only hit your DNS provider. This way you have a very simple and reliable update mechanism.
