    Hello,

    I'm working on a new WHM server setup, and I noticed the following strange problem: It seems like WHM thinks "dns clustering" is enabled, but nobody enabled it. I don't see any zone files in the list when I click "Edit DNS Zone Files". When I click "Configure Cluster" in order to disable it, the page just won't load... It seems like none of the pages located in the CGI folder of WHM load... I checked if perl is installed and it's located in /usr/bin/perl like it should. I tried to update cPanel/WHM but that didn't solve anything.

    Does anyone knows what I can do? I don't need DNS clustering :(

    Best Regards,
    ResellerPlanet

    I just come here to look up a solution for this same problem. I am running the latest release build, but I also tried stable and it did the same thing.

    I found the solution. Just install the following Perl module:
    Tie::IxHash

    my servers been having the same problem since the automatic update at noon my time (about 12.5 hours ago) I still haven't figured out how to fix it (I'm not that familiar with DNS issues)
    but this may come in handy:
    http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=valisint.net
    if you can understand and respond to the report. I need help!

    Also my WHM doesn't seem to be able to find that perl module...

    Your DNS report looks OK with no major issues.

    The search facility in WHM for Perl Modules seems to have a problem at the moment as it also fails to find any modules at all in my WHM. Not sure yet what is causing this search issue but am working on finding out.

    All the zone files are located in /var/named/domainname.db

    Check to see if they are indeed there.

    If so then try and restart bind.

    In WHM:
    Restart Services/DNS Server (BIND)

    In shell:
    service named restart

    Also you could always try a cPanel sync again in case there was a glitch on your previous update.

    In shell:
    /scripts/upcp --force

    :)

    Izzy,

    Thanks for checking!

    I managed to fix it, probably just before you checked it. It seems to be all good now. The final thing I did that put it all into place was to Synchronize All with the Primary Server.

    Getting to that point was tough though, because I had to edit the FirstTime.pm file to get it to stop from a deadly loop of the same question which I think is what caused the problem in the first place (I'm on manual update so it was probably too long between updates and some file was missing that it was expecting), or maybe the it would have had the same problem if it had updated ok, finally getting it to update properly didn't solve the issue.

    Cheers!
