    Hi Folks,

    I searched the forums, but I didmn't find anything on round robin DNS configuration under ISPConfig.

    I am migrating an existing zone/domain from a different DNS server to my ISPConfig DNS server.

    Currently, we have this in the zone file for round-robin DNS 'load balancing' of an FTP server:

    ; RR DNS with short TTL
    ftp 30 a
    30 a

    (Sorry for the formatting, evidently there is no way to use a fixed font or turn off formatting here...)

    Though I realize this is less than perfect load balancing, it works for this application.

    How can I do this in ISPconfig?

    Either you add two A records in in the ISPConfig DNS manager or you add them manually at the end of the zonefile of this domain.

    Thanks Till,

    I found it impossible to enter another A record via the web interface, so I added the two A records at the end of the /var/named/chroot/var/named/pri.domain.tld file like so:

    ftp 30 A
    ftp 30 A

    This also gave me the opportunity to specify a fairly-short 30 second TTL value.

    Thanks again,
