In Address Manager, DNS resource records describe the characteristics of a zone or sub-zone. Address Manager supports the following types of resource records.

Resource Record Type Description
Host Record Designates an IP address for a device. A new host requires a name and an IP address. Multiple addresses may exist for the same device.
CNAME Alias Record Specifies an alias for a host name. The alias record type requires a name.
TXT Text Record Associates arbitrary text with a host name. A text record includes name and text information. This record is used to support record types such as those used in Sender Policy Framework (SPF) e-mail validation.
HINFO Host Info Record Specifies optional text information about a host. The host info record includes CPU and OS information.
Service Record Defines services available within a zone, such as LDAP. A service record requires a name, priority, port, and weight. A lower priority value indicates precedence. The port value indicates the port on which the service is available. The weight value is used when multiple services have the same priority value; a higher weight value indicates precedence.
Mail Exchanger Record Designates the host name and preference for a mail server or exchanger. An MX record requires a name and a priority value. Priorities with a lower numeric value are chosen first in assessing delivery options.
NAPTR Naming Authority Pointer Record Specifies settings for applications, such as VoIP. These records are used in Address Manager to populate ENUM zones.
Generic Record The following generic record types are available: A, A6, AAAA, AFSDB, APL, CAA, CERT, DHCID, DNAME, DS, IPSECKEY, ISDN, KEY, KX, LOC, MB, MG, MINFO, MR, NS, NSAP, PTR, PX, RP, RT, SINK, SPF, SSHFP, TLSA, WKS, and X25. These records contain name, type, and value information.
