    I have a working ispconfig server, now i want a second server that can connect to the first server. I used the manual on my dabian server.

    Now i want that when i make a new site on the two servers the dns record are made so i can use the servers as name servers for the new domain.

    I hope somwone undersand the question :) an can help me.

    usually there is a bind folder under /etc (in your dns server) and "zones" files which you can edit and put the name of a machine along with its IP in there and then restart bind or bind9 again so the name gets recognized.
    so if I understand correctly you have to edit zones.xxxxx file where the xxxxx is the name of domain (or may be localhost)?

    You can set the second one up as a slave, so it pulls records from the primary master. Or you can manually do it (just use dns manager in ispconfig), or you can use a cron job and a passwordless ssh key to copy the zone files, etc. to the second box.
