WHM shows incorrect Name Server IP’s

Approx. read time : 2 min

When you set Default Name Servers from WHM & assign them with the IP, it still shows the incorrect ones.

Accessing Home » DNS Functions » Nameserver IPs as root shows no IP’s. Even if you update them with /scripts2/listassignednsips the IP field shows blank. In earlier cPanel releases you should set them in file /etc/nameserverips. Open this file in your favorite editor, and add entry as below.

10.10.10.1=ns1.yourdomain.com
10.10.10.2=ns2.yourdomain.com

This should show the correct IP’s. But, in the recent cPanel releases they are stored in a .yaml file. YAML is a human-readable data serialization format that takes concepts from programming languages such as C, Perl, etc. Open the file /var/cpanel/nameserverips.yaml and add entry as below.

ns1.yourdomain.com:
10.10.10.1: 1
count: 1
zones: yourdomain.com
ns2.yourdomain:
10.10.10.2: 1
count: 1
zones: yourdomain

Update them with command

# /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/updatenameserverips

It will show the correct IP’s assigned to the Name Servers now.
