If you are enabling the service point on multiple DNS/DHCP Servers, and prefer that the service points on each DNS/DHCP Server belong to the same Edge Site (therefore enforcing the same policies) using the DNS configuration on its own DNS/DHCP Server to resolve IPv4 DNS queries, perform the following steps:

  1. On each DNS/DHCP Server, configure the same additional IPv4 address on the loopback interface. This IPv4 address should not be in the 127/8 subnet. BlueCat recommends using the link-local IP address of 169.254.20.20. For more information, refer to Additional IP addresses.
  2. In the DNS Edge user interface, go to the Sites tab, then select the site where you want to enable the service point.
  3. Select the Namespace attached to the site and click Edit.
  4. In the configuration page of the Namespace, expand the Forwarding section, then in the Forwarders field, add the previously configured IPv4 address
  5. On each DNS/DHCP Server, enable the service point by following the steps in Configuring a DNS Edge service point. Enable each service point with the same Customer Instance URL and the same Site ID identifying the Site previously configured in steps 2 - 5.
