I recently updated my installation of WHM to v.82.0 (build 12) and since then I've had issues when attempting to create a new account.

In WHM I see:

Account Creation Status: failed
(XID dwumzv) The system failed to read up to 16 KB from a file handle because of an error: Connection reset by peer


In the logs I see the following:

Code:

I did as suggested today and got the message that dnsadmin started and the grep returns. However I'm still getting the message when I try to create a new account.

Further an email shows an error with dnsadmin. Here is a snippet from that email:

Code:
Service Check Raw Output

(XID g95ec4) The “dnsadmin” service is down.

The subprocess “/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_dnsadmin” reported error number 255 when it ended.
