Add a DNS zone in Address Manager. Use a template if desired and set the zone as deployable.

To add a DNS Zone:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the DNS tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  3. Under DNS Views, click a DNS view. The Zones tab for the view opens.
  4. Under Top Level Domains, click New.
  5. Under General, set the following items:
    • Name—enter the name for the DNS zone. When you are creating a sub zone within an existing zone or a top level domain, the name of the existing zone or top level domain appears in the field.
    • Template—to create the zone with a Zone Template, select a template from the list. Select From View to select a zone template created in DNS view level. Select From Configuration to select a zone template created in the configuration level. Zone templates can also be assigned later in case you do not select a zone template at this time. For more information, refer to Assigning the zone template to a DNS zone.
      Note: The zone templates created at the DNS view level cannot be used across different DNS views. If you need a global zone template that can be used across multiple DNS views, create a zone template at the configuration level. For more information, refer to DNS Zone Templates.
    • Deployable—when selected, the zone can be deployed to a server. When not selected, the zone cannot be deployed to a server.
  6. Under IP Restrictions, set the IP ranges for the zone:
    • Select a block or network from the drop-down list and click Add. The selected item is added to the list of IP Restrictions. All objects created within the view must fall within the blocks and networks in the IP Restrictions list.
    • IPv4 Block—select this option to show IPv4 blocks in the drop-down menu.
    • IPv4 Network—select this option to show IPv4 networks in the drop-down menu.
    • To remove a restriction from the list, click the Remove link beside the restriction.
  7. Under Change Control, add comments, if required.
  8. Click Add, or click Add Next to add another zone.
    Note: You can also add a zone or a sub-zone by clicking on a top level domain name and navigating through the list of top level domains, zones, and sub-zones.
