To configure delegation for child zones hosted on the same managed server:

In this scenario, both the parent and child zones are hosted on the same server. The server is managed by Address Manager.
  1. Add the DNS server to Address Manager. For instructions on adding a server, refer to Managing Servers.
  2. Add the parent and child zones to Address Manager. For instruction on adding DNS zones, refer to Managing DNS Zones.
  3. Assign the Master DNS deployment role to the parent zone, selecting the DNS server that you added in Step 1. The DNS deployment role set at the parent zone is inherited by the child zone.
  4. Deploy the configuration. For instructions on deploying data, refer to Manual deployment.

To configure delegation for child zones hosted on a different managed server:

In this scenario, the parent and child zones are hosted on different servers. Both servers are managed by Address Manager.
  1. Add the DNS servers to Address Manager. For instructions on adding a server, refer to Managing Servers.
  2. Add the parent and child zones to Address Manager. For instruction on adding DNS zones, refer to Managing DNS Zones.
  3. Assign the Master DNS deployment role to the parent zone, selecting the DNS server hosting the zone.
  4. Assign the Master DNS deployment role to the child zone, selecting the DNS server hosting the zone.
  5. Deploy the configuration. For instructions on deploying data, refer to Manual deployment.

To configure delegation for child zones hosted on a server outside your control:

In this scenario, the parent and child zones are hosted on different servers. The server hosting the parent zone is managed by Address Manager. The zone hosting the child zone is not managed by Address Manager and is outside of your control.
  1. Add the DNS server for the parent zone to Address Manager. For instructions on adding a server, refer to Managing Servers.
  2. Add an Other DNS Server for the child zone to Address Manager. For instructions on adding other DNS servers, refer to Adding Other DNS Servers.
  3. Add the parent and child zones to Address Manager. For instruction on adding DNS zones, refer to Managing DNS Zones.
  4. Assign the Master DNS deployment role to the parent zone, selecting the DNS server you added in Step 1.
  5. Assign the Master DNS deployment role to the child zone, selecting the Other DNS Server that you added in Step 2. If you are delegating the child zone to additional servers, you must assign Slave DNS deployment roles to the additional servers.
  6. Deploy the configuration. For instructions on deploying data, refer to Manual deployment.
