    Hi all,

    we will switch next days to plesk onyx multiserver, but there is still some questions left from my side.

    I know that we need a dedicated server only for the management with the same configuration as the hosting nodes as well with a plesk license and a multiserver license everywhere, and hosting is not allowed on the management server.

    1) Can I install docker containers on the management node?
    2) Can I run the primary DNS Server on the management node?
    3) Can I run the mail server on the management node?

    Thx very much.

    Hi @Andreas Predl,

    My opinion is you can have all mentioned services on the management node independently from Multi Server if are:
    - you have enough resources on the server;
    - used ports do not conflict with ports required for Multi Server.

    I might be misinterpreting this question, but if the question is whether you can have a mail server on the management node, while the associated hosting service is on a different node, then the answer - from my understanding of the roadmap - is no.

    Somewhere down the line, centralized mail and DNS will likely be implemented, as it is on the roadmap.

    actually waiting for centralized DNS/Mail management, for now multi-server isn't worth it to me over password manager and just using usefull hostnames (Web001, web002, web003 etc.)
