DNS deployment options define the deployment of Address Manager DNS services. Address Manager supports most of the options used by both BIND and Microsoft DNS.

For deployment options that take an IP address, ACL name, or TSIG key as a parameter, select the type of parameter you want to add from the drop-down list presented when defining the option.

  • To specify an IP address or name, select IP Address or name. Type the address or name in the text field and click Add.
  • To specify a TSIG key, select Key. A drop-down list appears and lists the TSIG keys available in the Address Manager configuration. Select a key from the list and click Add.
  • To specify an ACL, select ACL. A drop-down list showing pre-defined and custom DNS ACLs available in the current Address Manager configuration appears. Select an ACL from the drop-down menu and click Add.
Note: Custom Access Control Lists can be created by, managed in, or deployed from Address Manager.

You can set DNS Deployment options for the following Address Manager objects:

  • Configurations
  • Server Groups
  • Servers
  • DNS Views
  • DNS Zones
  • IPv4 Blocks
  • IPv4 Networks
  • IPv6 Blocks
  • IPv6 Networks
Note: DNS Deployment Options set on IPv4 Blocks apply only to the reverse zones that correspond to those blocks and are inherited by the networks within the blocks only if the DNS option inheritance setting of the configuration isn't disabled. DNS Deployment Options set on IPv6 Blocks apply only to the reverse zones that correspond to those blocks and are ‚Äčnot inherited by the networks within the blocks, regardless of the DNS option inheritance setting of the configuration. However, if you set any DNS deployment options at the network level you must also set a DNS deployment role at the network level in order to deploy those options.
Attention: Deployment option inheritance

When configuring deployment options, any options set at the server group level will override options set at the configuration level. Any deployment options set at the server level will override options set at the server group level and configuration level.
