    I have two servers running cPanel, one of them being DNS-only. The primary server has been running for the past month with no issues. I just installed the second server with DNS-only and am trying to get it configured. When I hit the 'Home' link, I get a screen similar to the primary server, but when I try to access most of the tabs (i.e. Server Configuration / Basic cPanel/WHM Setup), I get a blank screen. Is this normal since it is DNS-only or is there an issue?

    Also, from the DNS-only computer, I can access the interface using the internal IP:2086 ( (I do not have an external IP on this computer yet, wanted to do some testing prior to bringing it up unless it is required for this process to work), but when I try to access it from the primary computer to establish the cluster, I get this message:

    Failed to Connect

    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at

    Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.

    * Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later.
    * Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer's network connection.
    * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

    Any help will be appreciated!

    Is there a firewall running on the DNS Only server?
    To check, type 'setup' in the Centos svr and check the firewall.
