Gosh I have been a real bother these past 2 weeks, my apologies.
I have my Cluster Name servers setup as NS1 and NS2 (with more to come).
I want my SOA to be the NS1 host but the only way to do this is by changing the Server Templates->Master DNS server hostname setting. However changing this to be the NS1 hostname causes a duplicate Name Server to be input since the Slave Server hostnames are input automatically as well.
I have tested things at dnscheck.pingdom.com and they check out OK with duplicate NS records. I am just Curious if there is a way around it.
The whole reason I have set things up this way is to keep the physical hosts more secure through obscurity as well as limit delays with DNS updates by keeping the same SOA/Primary Name Server "NS1" during Domain Transfers between Hosts. Is there a benefit to keeping each Virtualmin host as the SOA that I have possibly overlooked?
