    I have WHM/Cpanel production server and other backup server with CPanelDNS Only.
    I want access whm in CPanelDNSOnly server using certificate generated on WHM/cPanel main server. i setup an account with domain and working dns on main server. the certificate issued no error but whm on backup server continue to show warnings about certificate.
    I want to know if this can work or not

    Hello @leonep,

    The free cPanel-signed SSL certificate for the server's hostname is not offered with cPanel DNS-Only at this time. We do have a feature request open for this at:

    Automatic SSL for DNSOnly

    It's currently marked as "Not Planned", however you should still be able to vote and subscribe to the request in order to receive a notification in the event we decide to implement it in the future (it's more likely we will consider such a feature with the impending addition of licenses for DNS-Only).

    In the meantime, there's a user-submitted workaround noted as the "Best Answer" on that feature request page should you want to install a free signed hostname SSL certificate on DNSOnly.

    Thank you.
