DNS roles must be defined either somewhere in the IP Space or at/within a View before any DNS deployment can occur.
You can also apply them further into the DNS core if desired. For reverse DNS, you must apply DNS deployments to either a block or a network in order to deploy the reverse DNS settings for that object and its sub-objects.
The following DNS server roles are available:
|None||This DNS role is not deployed. Use this option for DNS objects that exist, but should not be deployed.|
|Master||This role deploys details and options consistent with a DNS primary. This role is also used on a DNS/DHCP Server 250 with the appropriate DNS options to create a caching-only DNS server.|
|Hidden Master||This role deploys details and options consistent with a DNS primary. However, no name server records are created for the server, thus hiding it from DNS queries.|
|Slave||This role deploys details and options consistent with a DNS secondary.|
|Stealth Slave||A stealth slave is a DNS secondary server that does not have any name server records pointing to it. This is useful for testing purposes or for having a hot spare stand-by server. However, this is not a commonly used DNS role.|
|Forwarder||This role deploys details and options consistent with a DNS forwarder. You must use both the forwarding policy and forwarding options for this role to function properly.|
|Stub||A stub zone contains only the name server records for a domain. Address Manager generates name server records automatically during deployment, so a zone deployed within a stub role will not contain any user-selected details or options.|
|Recursion||This role creates DNS caching servers. For information on the options associated with this role, refer to Recursive DNS in the Address Manager Administration Guide.|
