[Pdns-users] PDNS notify zones different in cPanel Server

Understood now. However it doesn't work below:

pdnsutil set-kind domain.com master
Could not find backend willing to accept new zone configuration

I think I will just restart pdns service to effect the change, which
achieve the same purpose as well some how (eg. Moving a zone from native
to master).

Warmest Regards,
Jackson Yap

This is in the documentation[1]. Native means that PowerDNS does not do
the replication, but the backend is responsible for this (e.g. database
replication or rsync in the case of the BIND backend).

It depends on the backend. For any database backend you can change this
using pdnsutil:

  pdnsutil set-kind example.com MASTER

If you're using the BIND backend, you'll need to edit the bind config file
and run

  pdns_control rediscover
