The following section describes the prerequisites for service configuration using BlueCat Gateway images located on a cloud or local image repository. The BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server must be able to connect to the repository to successfully pull the image.
- If pulling an image from a cloud repository, you must set a DNS resolver on the BDDS. For more information, refer to DNS Resolver.
- If pulling images from a cloud repository, you must modify the BDDS firewall
rules to allow the BDDS to reach the repository. For details, refer to
articles 17871 and 16200 on BlueCat Customer
Care.Note: BlueCat recommends pulling images from cloud repositories only for BDDS appliances in lab environments, but not in production.
- If pulling images from a local repository (with BDDS behind an internet firewall), you must set up the necessary routing to allow the BDDS to reach the repository.
