Establishing a trust relationship
You can establish a master/primary nameserver relationship at your server setup level refer to page 16 for
more information. If you do set up a primary nameserver, you need to establish a trust relationship between
the two servers so that you can add all DNS entries from the primary nameserver. This saves you having to
log on to multiple servers to set up various DNS entries.
To establish a trust relationship with a primary nameserver:
1. Click on the Establish A Trust Relationship With a Primary Nameserver link in the DNS
2. Enter the root password for the trusted nameserver in the Master Server Root Password field.
3. Click on the Do it button.
