The following describes the stages of deployment validation.

When you deploy data from Address Manager, deployment validation works in three stages:

  1. Data deploys from Address Manager to a temporary directory on the managed DNS Server. The existing DNS data on the DNS Server isn't yet affected by this deployment.
  2. The DNS Server checks and validates the newly deployed data using the options you selected.
  3. The outcome of the validation check depends on the options you selected:
    • If the configuration file fails the validation test: deployment is labelled as invalid and the DNS data on the managed DNS Server isn't updated. Any existing DNS data on the DNS Server remains untouched. The invalid deployment is noted in the Address Manager Event List and you can review the DNS Validation server log to determine the cause.
    • If the configuration file passes the validation test and you didn't enable zone validation: deployment proceeds and the DNS data on the managed DNS Server is updated.
    • If you selected Fail for any of the zone validation options and a syntax error is detected in the data: deployment is labelled as invalid and the DNS data on the managed DNS Server isn't updated. The invalid deployment is noted in the Address Manager Event List and you can review the Zone Validation server log to determine the cause.
    • If you selected Warn or Ignore for any of the DNS zone validation options and a syntax error is detected in the data: deployment proceeds and the DNS data on the managed DNS Server is updated. Warnings are noted in the Address Manager Event list and you can review the Zone Validation server log to determine the source.
    • If no syntax errors are detected in the data: deployment proceeds and the DNS data on the managed DNS Server is updated.

Information from the deployment validation processes is available in the server logs for each server. For information on viewing the DNS Validation, Zone Validation, and DHCP Validation server logs, refer to Viewing DNS/DHCP Server logs.
