Parked or addon domains missing in Cpanel Mail account creation tab

Ever since after the up gradation of WHM to higher versions, there can be many issues of lost or unlisted addon/parked domains in Cpanel. The domains will be present in /etc/userdomains, but still fails to be seen in the email account creation tab in Cpanel. This is mainly beacuse of the XDNS entries in /var/cpanel/users/<cpanel_username>

If your required domains are marked as XDNS, then rename XDNS to DNS of all the required domain entries. After this you have to run the following script to update the userdomains


After running this script, the domains will be found available for new account creation. Also the previously created accounts will be restored back.

RHEL 6.5 will be the first release from Red Hat to support the Precision Timing Protocol (PTP)

The Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is a protocol used to synchronize clocks throughout a computer network. Here the devices are connected to a dedicated, high-speed Ethernet LAN segments which is interconnected by switches. The switches are used to capture timestamps upon the passage of an Ethernet frame (also termed as message) at the physical layer. On a local area network (LAN), it achieves clock accuracy in the sub-microsecond range. That is the PTP timescale is defined in seconds and nanoseconds.

PTP is the implementation of IEEE 1588. The system is more suitable for measurement and control systems and the work includes engineering collaboration and performance optimization because of high accuracy. That is PTP can be used most often to synchronize device clocks in special-purpose industrial automation and measurement networks.
