how do i create a dns record for a website that is hosted on two servers
Posted on 2008-06-19
i am running my own external server 2003 dns servers. I have two webservers hosting the same website. I want to create dns records so traffic is always directed to webserver a. if webserver a is unavailable then traffic will goto webserver b. i kno how to do this with mx records, but i dont see an option for a records. i know i can create multiple a records with the same name that point to different ip's,but that doesnt guarantee that traffic will always goto server a first.
