Address Manager Administration Guide

BlueCat Address Manager

BlueCat Address Manager for Windows Server (DDW) is a software interface or proxy used to manage Windows DNS and DHCP servers in Address Manager.

If you wish to add a Windows DNS or Windows DHCP server to Address Manager, you must perform the following:
Attention: Before managing a DDW server with Address Manager v9.0.0, you must first enable the TLSv1 and TLSv1.1 protocol on Address Manager. For more information, refer to KI-023394 on BlueCat Customer Care.
  1. Install DDW software on a Windows server to create a DDW server.
  2. Add the newly created DDW server to Address Manager.
  3. Add Managed Windows servers to Address Manager.
  4. Import DHCP and/or DNS data from the Managed Windows server into Address Manager.
  5. Change Managed Windows servers to Read-Write mode.
  6. Deploy the configuration.
From this point, Address Manager manages your Windows DNS and DHCP servers.
Note: You can manage DNS on a standalone Windows server. On all versions of Windows 2008 servers, User Account Control allows remote DNS administration by the Administrator account, but blocks it for members of the Administrators group. To re-enable remote DNS administration, run the following command on Windows 2008 server:
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
