    Yes, you can install a third or even fourth DNS server in the same way you installed the second DNS server.

    I just install a Multi server on a Virtual Box but the web server and the mail server shows two services that fail to start: FTPD Offline and SMTP Offline. I read some fix for that but they did not fix the problem. Any link that I can look up to solve this problem ?
    Here is some results when I was debugging the problem:
    [email protected]:/home/administrator# systemctl status postfix.service● postfix.service - LSB: Postfix Mail Transport Agent
    Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/postfix)
    Drop-In: /run/systemd/generator/postfix.service.d

    Please post the fiull length error lines as suggested, you can find them in mail.log and the pure ftpd log or syslog as well.

    if this is another "dns-only-serevr" you can disable the unused services.

    A second mailserver is not as easy installable as a DS server as it has to deal with the mail data too. I guess you should be able to do the basic install similar to the first mail server and then use the dovecot installation part from mirror server tutorial (in ISPConfig manual) to configure dovecot to mirror the actual mail data.
