    We're running a DNS cluster between our WHM machines, secondary DNS is hosted off network on a dedicated DNS machine running the DNSONLY-FREEBSD version Current version is 9.9.1-DNSONLY_49.

    It all works fine, mostly. But occasionally there’s a problem with zones being added to named.conf twice, happens seemingly randomly and as happened on all the servers in the cluster at some point. This of course prevents it reloading the zones and any other updates also fail due to the double entry. A manual edit to remove the duplicate is required.

    Another annoying problem, for some reason the DNSONLY install installs Exim and tries to install SpamAssassin. Every time we do an update for DNSONLY it attempts to install SpamAssassin. Why is it trying to install this?

    I think some more work should be done on the DNSONLY versions. At least fix these problems, the basic functionality is acceptable for something which is free. But these problems should be easy enough to resolve.

    Go on, have a guess
    Have you logged your problems in bugzilla so that cPanel is aware of the issues and can fix them?

    There was a bunch of updates in the DNSONLY tree just recently, but I don't know if they're OS specific:
