How to use the database cleaner.
Use the database cleaner to find and replace host record objects that have the same host name, but that are assigned to multiple IP addresses.
To run the Database Cleaner:
- Select the Administration tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Administration page.
- Under Database Management, click Database Management.
- Click Database Cleaner.
- Select the Host Record Duplicates check box.
- If there are no duplicate host records in the database, the No duplicate host records found message opens. Select the Administration tab to return to the Administration page.
- If duplicate host records are present in the database, a table of
records opens. The table displays the following information:
- Group NO—the group number for each group of duplicate records.
- NO—the number for each address in the entire set of duplicate records.
- Name—the host name for the record. Duplicate records that are to be merged with the first discovered record appear with a strike through the name. Click on a name to view the details for a record.
- Record Data—the IP address for the host record.
- Dependent Records—the number of dependent records for the host record.
- Dynamic—indicates if the host record is dynamic.
- View—indicates the DNS view for the host record.
- Configuration—indicates the Address Manager configuration for the host record.
- Click Merge All Duplicate Host Records. When the merge process is complete, the No duplicate host records found message appears.
- Select the Administration tab to return to the Administration page.
