Droplet 1 IP (need 2 ip for ns1 and ns2) - Virtualmin

June 27, 2013 1.9k views
Hello I want to setup a Virtualmin server but Droplet has got for definition 1 IP and i need to create ns1, ns2 and associate them to different ips. What's the quickest solution (if exist) without getting my hands "dirty" changing bind & Co ? No problems if i need to setup another droplet.

We do not support multiple IPs per droplet - each droplet comes with only 1 IPv4 IP address.

You can simply set both ns1 and ns2 to the same IP address.
two name server records should never point to the same machine. They make you have two name servers for redundancy in case one of the servers go down.
@d.mountford: Having two different IPs pointing to the same machine is basically the same thing. I don't see why anyone would need two different IPs for ns1/ns2 if they're the same machine.
@Matteo,

If you want to implement redundancy, as @d.mountford suggested, spin two 512MB droplets and make sure that at least one is in a different data center.
MM Thanks for reply :) I imagined the same thing but I was hoping other solutions :)

@Kamal Nasser. Thanks for saying "two name server records should never point to the same machine. They make you have two name servers for redundancy in case one of the servers go down" but i know this. The fact is that i'm lazy setting up a new server, changing bind and so on.... :)

I'll follow the suggestion: two 512MB droplets , different data centers
