Cannot add addon domain or parked domain

Posted: May 19, 2013 in Cpanel
The following error in cPanel shows up when adding new clients that have existing name services elsewhere:

"Using nameservers with the following IPs:, Sorry, the domain is already pointed to an IP address that does not appear to use DNS servers associated with this server. Please transfer the domain to this serversnameservers or have your administrator add one of its nameservers to /etc/ips.remotedns and make the proper A entries on that remote nameserver."
The reason you get this error is because you are not using the current hosting server's nameservers and A record. If you point your A record to the current server's ip it will get fix. But if the client says I want to use only remote nameservers and along with I would like to add addon domain or parked domain.

To Fix:

Logon to WHM
Select Tweak Settings under Server Setup
Click on Domains
Put checkboxes next: Allow Remote Domains
[Allow creation of parked/addon domains that resolve to other servers (e.g. domain transfers) This can be a major security problem. If you must have it enabled, be sure not to allow users to park common Internet domains.]
