    Hello,

    I am wondering what services are required and which can be disabled on DNSOnly boxes - e.g. do I actually need to run EXIM on my DNSOnly installations?

    Thanks!

    Ah, that is what I thought.

    What services can be disabled on DNSOnly? I'd like to run them lean to only provide the DNS service.

    cPanel DNS-Only only includes services that it actually utilizes. Thus, you don't have to disable any of the services that are enabled by default.

    Thank you.

    Say someone disabled services on a DNS-Only box; what would the default enabled services be?

    Here's a list of the default enabled services, as obtained from the /etc/chkserv.d/chkservd.conf file on a DNS-Only server:

    Code:
    cphulkd
    cpsrvd
    crond
    exim
    ipaliases
    mysql
    named
    queueprocd
    rsyslogd
    sshd
    Additional services are available through "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Service Manager" and some of them are enabled during the initial setup wizard.

    Thank you.
