BlueCat Address Manager

The following lists the generic resource record types that can be configured in Address Manager.

Record Type Description
A (IPv4 Address) Maps hosts to IPv4 addresses.
A6 (IPv6 Address) Maps hosts to IPv6 addresses.
AAAA (IPv6 Address) Maps hosts to IPv6 addresses. Normally, this record is created by adding a host record in Address Manager and linking it to an IPv6 address.
AFSDB (AFS Database) Defines a host providing an AFS database service.
APL (Address Prefix List) An experimental resource record defining one or more IP addresses or a range of IP addresses.
CERT (Certificate) Stores cryptographic certificates and certificate revocation lists.
DHCID (Dynamic Host Configuration Identifier) Stores client identifiers in the DNS to unambiguously associate domain names with the DHCP clients using them.
DNAME (Delegation of Reverse Names) Maps an entire subtree of the DNS namespace to another domain.
DS (Delegation Signer) Creates a chain of trust between a signed parent zone and a signed child zone in DNSSEC.
IPSECKEY (IP Security Key) Store public keys for IP security systems.
ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) Associates the telephone number of the ISDS Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) to a host name.
Key (Public Key) Stores public keys in DNS.
KX (Key Exchanger) Allows a client to query a host and receive alternative hosts.
LOC (Location) Defines the geographic position of a host or service name.
MB (Mailbox) Defines the location of an email address.
MG (Mail Group) Defines the members of a mail group. Provided members of the group are defined using MB resource records, each member of the group receives mail sent to the group.
MINFO (Mailbox Mail List Information) Defines the mailbox administrator for a mail list. It can also be used for receiving errors related to the mail list.
MR (Mailbox Renamed) Allows you to alias or forward a mailbox name to another mailbox name.
NS (Name Server) Defines a DNS server that responds authoritatively for the zone or domain.
NSAP (Network Service Access Point) Maps a host name to an endpoint address in ISO’s Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) system.
PTR (Pointer) Provides a reverse mapping of an IP address to a host name.
PX (X.400 to RFC 822 E-mail) Maps ITU X.400 format email addresses to RFC 822 format email addresses.
RP (Responsible Person) Associates an email address and optional human-readable text data with a host.
RT (Route Through) Defines a host through which datagrams should be routed.
SINK (Kitchen Sink) Contains bulky, complex, or obscurely structured DNS data, for which no other resource record type currently exists.
SPF (Sender Policy Framework) Used to verify that a host can use a domain name to send email.
SSHFP (SSH Key Fingerprint) Provides a method for a host to obtain the fingerprint (hash or digest) of the public key used in an SSH session.
TLSA (Transport Layer Security Authentication) Specifically for use with DANE (DNS-based Authentication for Named Entities) protocol, the TLSA record associates a TLS server certificate or public key with the domain name from which the certificate originates using DNSSEC for validation. For more information, refer to DANE.
WKS (Well-Known Service) Describes the well-known services supported by a particular protocol by a host.
X25 (X.25 Address) Maps a PSDN (Public Switched Data Network) address to a host name.
