Best approach to setup a DirectAdmin Multi Server DNS Cluster
I am using cPanel/WHM since 2001 so I know it inside out. Doing a cPanel cluster on it is pretty straight forward
I am new to directadmin (thanks to @AnthonySmith, @seriesn and anynode.net for the free DA licenses)
I want to setup two DirectAdmin nodes and four NS nodes
DirectAdmin Nodes (the full package)
NameServers only nodes running DirectAdmin (no hosting accounts, just syncing DNS data)
- What is the best way to maintain two NS at least in DirectAdmin?
- How do I migrate accounts between vps1 and vps2 while auto-fixing the DNS in the cluster (like cPanel-DNSOnly do it)?
- How can I make sure that only one instance of the username exists in the cluster (including the NS)?
I have followed this and its working BUT whats the optimal way of doing it?

I could be wrong and @Francisco or @SmallWeb might be able to share the best practices.
When you are just doing standard migration (backup/restore), you will need to remove the old zone. Else there will be conflicts.
On the cluster settings, I just keep zone transfer enabled. Everything else is disabled.
My way of migration has always been, backup, transfer, delete, wait couple of minutes for the zones to remove and restore.
I could be wrong but it doesn’t create “access” for the other users on separate servers.
