This chapter describes how to add, configure, and work with various kinds of servers in Address Manager, as well how to enable service configurations and configure monitoring services and perform maintenance of BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server (BDDS) appliances and virtual machines. Additional topics include Server Interfaces, Deployment Roles, Deployment Options, Server Commands, and Server Logs.
Address Manager v8.2.0 supports DNS/DHCP Server appliances and virtual machines running software version 8.1.0 or greater only. Customers upgrading to Address Manager v8.3.0 are advised to also upgrade any managed servers to DNS/DHCP Server v8.1.0 or greater in order to ensure proper continuity and functionality of services. Upgrading to Address Manager v8.2.0 without also upgrading servers running software version 8.0.0 or earlier may result in these servers no longer being managed by Address Manager.
Note: Customers running DNS/DHCP Serversoftware version 6.7.1 or earlier who require assistance upgrading their server should contact BlueCat Customer Care.
