Plesk DNS Clustering

Please give to Plesk the ability to do DNS Clustering (at least) with another servers like cPanel; is not really difficult to configure manually a BIND DNS clustering

    Indeed there is a link to configure the ***** DNS manager extension, but that implies manually installing Bind at a new server.

    Another control panel has a specific free license that allows a simplified installation of it to only host and manage DNS zones. This simplifies installing a DNS cluster on multiple servers.

    I believe the idea would be to have a Plesk dnsonly license, where we could install versions of Plesk that would only work as a DNS server, work out of the box with the Salve DNS extension and be able to keep the server updated and secure.

    No that is not at all the solution. We use DNS slaves already. The original poster and the other who has commented asks for cluster support like cPanel has implemented it. It seems that you do not want to understand that. Using just slaves does not really work if one want to use several plesk servers.

    The user Ender commented earlier :
    "Main idea here is domains in DNS cluster that already created in other servers shouldn't be created in Plesk environment. "

    I can't believe you have added all kind of features to Plesk 17 but not basic essential features as DNS clustering. Cpanel has done this quite right. In addition to cPanel features a server should only be able to update it's own domains. Not all domains in cluster. This allows us to offer Plesk VPS servers to our clients that can connect to our DNS cluster.

    DNS cluster might be done with 3rd party apps or plesk extensions.
    Main idea here is domains in DNS cluster that already created in other servers shouldn't be created in Plesk environment.
    If you can provide solution for that then it works seamlessly and people can merge all plesk servers in single DNS server without any problem.

    yes, is about make server dns clustering like cPanel does.
    In the actually I have a lot cPanel servers, 4 for DNS (master), and the other just connected to them, every change is maded to the master server directly.

    I was looking the same functionality between plesk servers, but it doesn't have it.
