Understanding Clustering Domain and DNS in NS8

Ns8 has the ability of migrating modules between different Server/Nodes.

In some instances, each of the other node might have their own public ip address.

WHen i have a Master node, with publix ip

and i have a domainA pointed to1.1.1.1

if i add a second Node and the second server has ip

When a module migration/cloning of the module to the second Node with ip

Do i also need to adjust the SN records of the said Module to point to the second node ip, or so long as they are all pointed to node 1 they will work.

Does this scenraio apply to Node 1(master) alone, or the hostname can be pointed to any node in the cluster, and it will still work.


Congratulations on buying Cloudflare…


Dreaming of a global failover?

→ Of course you will need DNS pointers set correctly.
NS8 doesn’t bypass the Internet by routing everything over it’s internal VPN.
(And if it could, you wouldn’t have a failover!).

Moving worker nodes has nothing to do with DNS.

Amazon’s AWS, but also others offers the option of having rack space & virtual servers all over the globe. You can basically “move” them anywhere.
→ Even if you have your DNS at AWS, you would need to change / adapt the DNS.

My 2 cents
