    So, if I had 2 servers clustered, someone installed a root kit on one, would it install it on the otherone? --- meaning the 2nd so-called "backup" server is no use

    thanks

    Depends on what type of clustering you are speaking of.

    The "clustering" in cPanel as of now is simply DNS clustering, there is no real clustering yet.

    If you had boxes clustered as in load balanced, with same content on two servers, than yes, that's what this would mean.

    So DNS Clustering, it wouldn't install these files to the second box?
    is this instantaneous too, yes i mean the CPanel clustering.

    There is no such thing as cPanel clustering..

    Here's a pretty decent tutorial/howto on DNS clustering though:

    So DNS clustering (as in the one included with CPanel) only resolves the servers?

    it doesn't copy files between them?
