Hi Frank,

I have two different data center environments. Venuc DC ve Mars DC

in this structure;  Master: PowerDNS  Slave: BindDNS    Management
Interface:  poweradmin

I will use octo dns in powerdns sync.

my goal is to build a high availability structure

What I want to ask is

How can i run powerdns high availability

How can I do that when one of the two powerdns servers is crash, the other
one is activated automatically ?

Is active and replica structure suitable for mysql database (high

Is there something missing or wrong that should be in this structure?

I would be very grateful if you could explain in detail.

I sent a screenshot in my previous e-mail, but I guess it did not reach you
due to the size.

Thank you so much…

Kind Regards,

Hi Cem,

What you mean by "active passive"? Do you mean a main node and a standby
backup node? For DNS it's recommended to just have multiple nodes which are
all active, or use a networking technique such as anycast, bgp-ondemand
route advertisement, or even better a dns aware load balancer such as
dnsdist to perform failovers if you want to have an active / standby setup.

I hope this answers your question. If not, please let us know what you want
to accomplish and we'll point you in the right direction.

Kind Regards,
