I’m doing some work for another web hosting company who is using CPanel (grrrr). I’m having nothing but problems with it (of course). One of this issues I’m having has kind of spawned a question about NodeWorx. Currently mail on this CP server is completely down, so 60+ domains worth of customers are not getting any email until the techs @ CP wake up.
I’m going to be switching them over to NW, I was just waiting for ver 3.0 to come out b4 I did it. My understanding is that’s going to be today. YAY! My question is:
Is it possible to have a backup mail server for a NW server?
NodeWorx Server 1 - mx 10 -> nodeworxserver1.com, mx 20 -> backupmx.com
NodeWorx Server 2 - mx 10 -> nodeworxserver2.com, mx 20 -> backupmx.com
NodeWorx Server 3 - mx 10 -> nodeworxserver3.com, mx 20 -> backupmx.com
BackupMX server running NW or Qmail or whatever automatically gets new accounts when they’re processed on one of the servers. In other words, when Joe Blow adds an account on nodeworxserver1.com it automatically adds the backupmx record and sets up the email account on backupmx, so should the nodewox server go down for whatever issue (HW, SW, maintenance,etc) then their mail isn’t interrupted. This is similar to what CP offers for a “cluster DNS” solution. One DNS server acts as a DNS2 for all of the CP servers on a network.
