Things to note – One Advanced edition license will allow you to install the WHM plugin and tracker daemon on a single server. The listener daemon is free to be downloaded and installed on as many machines as you want. However, it will not work without the tracker daemon running on at least one server in the cluster.

Version 1.0.1 released:

-Bug fixed:- Error while creating subdomain because of INCLUDE entries of key files in a zone.Kindly note that our tests on all cPanel run servers have been a success except for VPS servers running Parallels Virtuozzo using SLM to limit memory and which has an assigned memory of less than 1 GB. You can read more about SLM here : SLM Parallels KB. We are working on this memory puzzle and expect a fix with the next update. The Plugin is not tested on a cluster and hence we do not suggest this plugin for anyone who uses a DNS Cluster. The Plugin best works on single dedicated servers with minimum 1G of RAM or more. If for any reason the signing fails, Please goto Tweak Settings => System => Max cPanel process memory ; and make this Unlimited for the key signing to function. You can revert this back once the signing is done.
