    Since cPanel DNS Only doesn't offer automatic OS updates like cPanel does, I issue a yum update every once in a while.
    Today I realized my server has a lot of i386 packages installed, and I don't know if they're even necessary.

    Here's a list:
    root@dns1 [~]# yum list installed *.i386

    Of course for every one of the packages above, their x86_64 version is also installed.
    Can I safely delete them? Are they necessary for cPanel DNS Only? Or should I keep them just to be safe?

    Thanks in advance :)

    If the server is working properly, I wouldn't uninstall any such packages. It is unlikely they are needed, but we wouldn't want to be responsible for the machine ceasing to function by a package removal that we suggested here to perform. If you do proceed with uninstalling any rpms, I would highly suggest to ensure to have a backup of the machine ready in case anything goes wrong.
