    Unable to create nameserver


    I am trying to create nameservers on my new server by the following steps :

    - Registered nameservers on enom as the domain is registered there.

    - Got 2 IPs from server company

    - In WHM added those IPs with Add a New IP Address option under IP functions and now system says you have 2 Free IPs.

    - Basic cPanel & WHM Setup, entered and clicked on assign IP address but it says : Sorry, you are out of IPs to assign as nameservers.

    What should I do now?

    You can manually add those name servers by logging into shell:

    Edit the file by running vi /etc/nameserverips. The format of the file is IP address = name server. For example:

    Just put the IP address that you want to add in the first part and the name of the new name server in the second part.

    Thanks! I have added it manually via SSH,

    Now I can see them on nameserver IPs page of WHM

    But on Basic cPanel & WHM Setup page when I click on Add a entry for this nameserver,

    In the popup window, the table show different IP next to

    How can I be sure that nameserver is perfectly fine on the server, is there any external tool to check the nameserver?

    The files to check name server IPs are

    If the IPs are set properly there, no need to worry about what WHM is showing, however you can still verify the A record of the name server at:

    If you haven't set the A record for the name servers yet, edit the DNS zone of from WHM -> Edit a DNS Zone and set an A record for the name servers.
