named.conf.options:

If the connection is working, but you're not getting any domains; have you told DA to start sending all the current domains?


If you need to transfer all of your zones from your current machine to the servers listed in your multi-server IP list, then you can type:
Code:
echo "action=rewrite&value=named" >> /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue

which will rewrite all local zone, thus triggering the transfer of them to the remote servers.

Or if you have a large number of domains, you could probably test it by adding a subdomain on a test account or something.

Still no go. I added manually zone to the zone file:
zone "pingu.ovh" {type slave; file "pingu.ovh.db"; masters {172.xx.xx.xx; }; };

and that transferred successfully, and only that - others are still getting not authoritative message .
DS still has no sign of working as nothing is logged in the log files of ds. Logs (syslog) for successfully transfered domain are:

Jul 31 15:27:02 ns2 named[9102]: client 172.xx.xx.xx#43582: received notify for zone 'pingu.ovh'
Jul 31 15:27:02 ns2 named[9102]: zone pingu.ovh/IN: notify from 172.xx.xx.xx#43582: serial 2020073100
Jul 31 15:27:02 ns2 named[9102]: client 172.xx.xx.xx#43582: received notify for zone 'pingutest.pl': not authoritative
Jul 31 15:27:02 ns2 named[9102]: client 172.xx.xx.xx#43582: received notify for zone 'presta.test': not authoritative
Jul 31 15:27:02 ns2 named[9102]: zone pingu.ovh/IN: Transfer started.
Jul 31 15:27:02 ns2 named[9102]: transfer of 'pingu.ovh/IN' from 172.xx.xx.xx#53: connected using 172.xx.xx.xx#48175
Jul 31 15:27:02 ns2 named[9102]: zone pingu.ovh/IN: transferred serial 2020073100
Jul 31 15:27:02 ns2 named[9102]: transfer of 'pingu.ovh/IN' from 172.xx.xx.xx#53: Transfer status: success
Jul 31 15:27:02 ns2 named[9102]: transfer of 'pingu.ovh/IN' from 172.xx.xx.xx#53: Transfer completed: 1 messages, 14 records, 383 bytes, 0.001 secs (383000 bytes/sec)

so that is working but only when added manually.

What do you mean no reaction?
Did you add a new domain to see if it gets added?
Already existing domains are not sent across unless you use a command from SSH, so to test you need to create a new test domain (even an invalid one as test.com) and see if the slaves.conf file get populated

If that happen, then you can see if the .db file gets created, if that doesn't happen you are missing configuration on named.

So, let's check one thing at time:
1 - DS is running, great! - If not, DS issue.
2 - DA can add the multi-server and communicate with it? - If not, DS issue or network (firewall for instance)
3 - Adding a domain does add the line in slaves.conf on the nameserver? - If not, DS issue, but if #2 worked this should work too, or file permission
4 - An newrly added domain get it's own zone file (.db) on the nameserver? - If not, named config (either receiver or sender config).

Hope this helps

By no reaction i meant nothing was happening after adding new domain in DA- no new entries in ds logs, no new entries for zones (slaves.conf) and no db files.
1. Yup it's runnig
2. Yup
3. Nope
4. Nope
I was observing connections via netstat - after adding new domain there is a connection from DA server with directslave client - but nothing is happenning.

After disabling DS - and adding manually zone to the conf file - re-adding domain in DA - transfer of the zone is OK - logs and conf files posted earlier.

Only info about starting and stopping DS - action.log is empty.

Not sure if you're still looking for an answer, but do the directory and file you specified in directslave.conf under 'named_workdir' and 'named_conf' have bind:bind permissions? I had a similar problem and that was the issue for me. I did receive an error about this in the directslave error log though.

Yes it had bind:bind permissions. I Stopped playing with directslave and managed to fix my problems with bash script running every 5 minutes with cron.

Is it posible that my cpanel servers write zones to direct slave?
No it’s not a native feature. It works with DA masters with multi server logic. It wasn’t invented for cPanel.

for cPanel you all have DNS only or PowerDNS clustering.

When I look up my DNS servers at mxtoolbox I always get this error message for the directslave server: "At least one name server failed to respond in a timely manner"

It appears to work fine and zones get synced with no issue.

Is this normal?

Did you set up BIND on the Directslave?
Did you add all the needed A and NS records on the master for the Slave?
Did you open tcp and udp 53 on the slave firewall if there is one?
Code:
dig NS yourdomain.com
Do you see it here?

Bind is running, yes.
I even disabled firewall just for testing, so that shouldn't be an issue.

In dig, it shows up in the answer section.
