Question

How to implement integration between Plesk server that is running as a primary DNS server and a secondary (slave) DNS server?

Answer

The integration can be performed using Slave DNS Manager extension available in Extensions Catalog in Plesk.

The extension works according to the following algorithm:

  • It registers a slave server in the extension settings
  • The slave server’s IP address is automatically added to the list of addresses allowed to transfer domain zones from the Plesk server
  • When creating , modifying, or deleting an active domain zone in Plesk, Plesk creates, modifies, or deletes the domain zone in the local DNS service
  • The script starts and receives the domain name and the command to create, modify, or delete a domain zone
  • The script initiates rndc command for each connected slave server
  • Slave servers synchronize domain zones with the ones on the Plesk server

Visit Plesk Extension Guide for instructions on setting up a secondary DNS server.
