    Nameserver Question

    I see a lot of people around here setting up two nameservers on a single machine. Typically through a control panel such as CPanel or Ensim...

    How does this work? Is the same server (bind/djbdns) listening on two different IP addresses? So essentially, the same server is given two different names?

    I'd guess this isn't advisable right as the purpose of having two (or more) nameservers is for failover reasons.

    yes, you can run ns1 & ns2 from the same box, just different IP's.

    Prolly not a good idea.
    GUI admin tools have no honor. It is a good day to vi.
