    I have discovered that the blank lines in .db zone file records, which are located in /var/named/, are causing issues with the DNS clustering we have established. So if I run DNS Cleanup from WHM, will this remove the line spaces in the zone file records?

    Hello :)

    The "Perform a DNS Cleanup" option in WHM is designed to remove duplicate entries from your Named configuration file. It will not remove invalid or empty lines in the DNS zones. You may want to manually correct any zones with invalid entries by directly editing the zone.

    Thank you.
