Set deployment validation options for a configuration for DHCP, DNS and DNS zones at a server level. Validation options set at the server level will override validation options set at the configuration level.

You can set server-level deployment validation options when adding or editing a DNS/DHCP Server. For complete instruction about adding or editing servers, refer to Managing Servers.

If the validation options are set, the pre-deployment validation will also be performed as part of normal deployment. For more information, refer to Pre-deployment validation.

To set validation options at the server level:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  3. Under Servers, click New and select Server.
  4. Under Validation Options, set the following options to override DHCP and DNS services configuration or DNS zones validation settings configured at the configuration level:
    • Override configuration level DHCP validation settings—select the check box to set DHCP deployment validation options that are specific to the server. If selected, the Enable DHCP configuration validation check box appears.
      • Enable DHCP configuration validation—select the check box to check the syntax of the dhcpd.conf file and validate data prior to deployment from Address Manager.
    • Override configuration level DNS validation settings—select the check box to set deployment validation options that are specific to the server. If selected, the Enable DNS configuration validation and Enable DNS zones validation check boxes appear:
      • Enable DNS configuration validation—select the check box to check the syntax of the named.conf file and validate data prior to deployment from Address Manager.
      • Enable DNS zones validation—select the check box to check the syntax of each DNS zone file and validated data prior to deployment from Address Manager. This is equivalent to setting the -i switch for the named-checkzone tool. If selected, the DNS Zones Deployment Validation Setting section opens on the page.
  5. Click Add or Update.
