Response Policy Zone contains a list of harmful domains that need to be blocked or redirected.

DNS administrators can overlay custom responses to queries on top of the global DNS space. Attempting to access sites that are harmful or illegal will be blocked or redirected.

Response Policies are deployed as part of a DNS role and the deployment of the Response Policies takes place in the following order:

  1. Local Whitelist
  2. Local Redirect
  3. Local Blacklist
  4. Local Blackhole
  5. BlueCat Security Feed

To add Response Policy zones:

  1. 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.
  2. Under DNS Views, click a DNS View then the RP Zones sub tab.
  3. Under Response Policy Zones, click New.
  4. Under General, enter a name for a Response Policy zone in the Name field.
  5. Under Type, select Local and set the following parameters:
    • Local—select Local to use Response Policies defined in Address Manager.
      • Response Policy—choose a local Response Policy from the drop-down menu.
  6. Under Change Control, add comments, if required.
  7. Click Add.
After adding Response Policy zones, you must associate the RP Zone configuration with a DNS server by adding the DNS deployment role.
