New resource records are created on the Resource Record tab of a zone. Address Manager supports the following types of resource records.
|Resource Record Type||Description|
|Host Record||Designates an IP address for a device. A new host requires a name and an IP address. Multiple addresses may exist for the same device.|
|Mail Exchanger Record||Designates the host name and preference for a mail server or exchanger. An MX record requires a name and a priority value. Priorities with a lower numeric value are chosen first in assessing delivery options.|
|CNAME Alias Record||Specifies an alias for a host name. The alias record type requires a name.|
|Service Record||Defines services available within a zone, such as LDAP. A service record requires a name, priority, port, and weight. A lower priority value indicates precedence. The port value indicates the port on which the service is available. The weight value is used when multiple services have the same priority value; a higher weight value indicates precedence.|
|HINFO Host Info Record||Specifies optional text information about a host. The host info record includes CPU and OS information.|
|TXT Text Record||Associates arbitrary text with a host name. A text record includes name and text information. This record is used to support record types such as those used in Sender Policy Framework (SPF) e-mail validation.|
