Address Manager Administration Guide

BlueCat Address Manager

Anycast using RIP is a distance-vector protocol that can be deployed as an interior gateway protocol. The Quagga daemon in Address Manager will configure advanced RIP parameters.

To configure Anycast using RIP on a DNS Server:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers 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 Servers, click a server name. The Details tab for the server opens.
  4. Click the server name menu and select Service Configuration. The Configure Remote Services page opens.
  5. From the Service Type drop-down menu, select Anycast.
    Attention: If you have upgraded from Address Manager v3.7.x, you will receive the following warning message:
    • This service has been set to Override. Any update to the service will overwrite the existing service configuration with the settings added in the user interface.

    Modifying the current service configuration will disable the Service Configuration Override and overwrite the existing configuration file with the new values and settings.

    Click Cancel to preserve the service configuration files maintained during the upgrade from Address Manager v3.7.x.

  6. Under General Settings, set the following parameters:
    • Enable Anycast Service—select this check box to enable Anycast service; deselect this check box to disable Anycast service.
    • Protocol—select RIP. Different fields become available depending on the type of protocol that you select.

  7. Set the optional authentication parameters:
