Yes, the IP fail-over is configured as an extra IP address on your server.

If you wish to use it for DNS you can however OVH provide a secondary DNS server free with all accounts!

Simply setup ns1 with your server IP and
ns2 to the IP address shown in the Secondary DNS area in your manager.

I too need two IP addresses. Is it true that you can use the IP failover address as a second IP?

In order to point the correct name servers, customer should look into the following guide: http://help.ovh.co.uk/NewDNSServer

Therefore in your case you will need to use:

As the primary name server your own kimsufi: ksXXX.kimsufi.com
As the secondary DNS server the following one: ns.kimsufi.com

Afterwards you need to wait up to 24 hours for the change to take effect.

I have just checked the OVH site, it would seem you only get 1 IP and no Fail-over IP. Sorry for the mistake.

To get nameservers working, just point them both to the same IP. This will work fine.

I believe OVH are working on a way to give people the option of more IP's. Something I look forward to.

You get a second IP called an "IP Fail-over". You must set this up and use that as your second IP.

I have a kimsurfi server with you and it only comes with 1 ip address. and to setup nameservers you require two for ns1 and ns2 i cant setup my windows dns with only one ip!

Is there away around this?
