If I have 3 IPs on a server, on want to use them as follows:
IP1 - server main IP
IP2 - DNS IP (ns1.domain.com)
IP3 - shared IP
Do I need to have active DNS services for IP1 and IP3, or is it safe to remove them from the iterative list on the dns management page?
If I only want DNS to be handled through IP2, I’m assuming it’s safe to just remove the other two (this will allow the DNS server to only operate and take requests from IP2?)
You will be safe disabling them form DNS server.
I would leave them disabled on DNS over removing as it maintains the same result, whilst allowing easy add if your DNS IP goes offline for whatever reason
So if I disable them, that allow the DNS server to only operate and take requests from the 1 that is enabled correct? (trying make sure I have completely separate IPs for the main IP [hostname], dns, and shared IP)
Yes, if IP addresses are disabled, they are not part of DNS active, therefore no response will be given if any DNS requests are received.
If you want to see this in action, once disabled, if then go to nodeworx, server, logs, DNS, you should see a not active line
awesome, thanks for the quick answers!
