So I'm trying to use backup DNS, as I only have 1 IP distributed to a clustered system, which is probably not optimal... but I'm working with limited resources. I have added the AXFR (Allow Zone Transfers) in the Main DNS Zone page for my primary site, and have added an NS record pointing gethosting.today to ns2.afraid.o r g should this be the miyagi.gethosting.today (name of primary in cluster) to ns2.afraid.o r g? I also have added an A record pointing ns2.afraid.o r g to 126.96.36.199 (afraid. o r g s ip). Now the part I don't understand is this I also don't know if I should put anything in Update ACL either on ISP config backend. On Their ACL I added my IP I'd love to confer with someone about this. Am I missing some steps. Also, What would be the dig command to properly check these changes? I am only getting a non-authoritative answer from my name server using nslookup. So This is what led me to believe something is amiss in my setup.
