Master and Slave DNS in the same server

Hello!

I have successfully installed Virtualmin in a Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS.

The server (initial) hostname is ns1.(ourdomain).com and it’s working fine as the master DNS and Virtualmin.

But I want to know how can I create the ns2.(ourdomain).com in the same server, without having to create another server (virtual machine) to be the slave DNS (at least temporarily).

I have additional IP’s for this purpose, if necessary.

Did I have to create a new virtual server with this sub-domain?

Thanks in advance!

Howdy,

Well, if it’s all going to be on the same server – I’m not sure I’d setup any sort of master/slave setup.

You can simple have ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com each point to two different IP’s on your server.

So line as BIND is listening on both IP’s, that would work just fine.
