This section explains how Address Manager manages Windows DNS servers. In Address Manager, a DNS view is the parent object for DNS zones. Although Windows does not support views, you must create a view in Address Manager before you can import or deploy DNS data.

Address Manager provides an environment from which you can manage all of your Windows DNS servers. Address Manager manages the following types of DNS data:

  • Forward zones and resource records
  • Reverse zones (for deployment only)
  • Server-level and zone-level settings
  • Stub zones
  • Conditional forwarding
  • Delegation

In both Read-Only and Read-Write modes, Managed Windows DNS servers send Dynamic DNS (DDNS) resource records to Address Manager using a notification mechanism, which ensures that this information is up-to-date in Address Manager.
