The types of servers you can manage in Address Manager are as follows:
- DNS/DHCP Server—A BlueCat server used to provide DNS or DHCP services.
- BIG-IP DNS Server—An F5 DNS server that can act as a secondary of a primary BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server.
- Local Traffic Manager—An F5 Local Traffic Manager (LTM) that serves as a load balancer in an F5 environment.
- BlueCat Cloud DNS-BlueCat Cloud DNS server—An externally hosted cloud DNS service provided by a service provider on a remote server. You connect to the cloud service through an API provided by the hosting service. BlueCat Cloud DNS servers are intended for use as secondary servers for a primary or hidden primary configured on a managed DNS/DHCP Server. You can only apply the secondary DNS deployment role to a BlueCat Cloud DNS server. A configuration can have only one BlueCat Cloud DNS server. BlueCat Cloud DNS servers can't be used in an xHA pair.
- Other DNS Server—A non-Address Manager, non-DNS/DHCP Server on an external network. For example: an external server.
Tip: Servers do not need to be installed and connected to your network prior to adding them to Address Manager. You can add the servers to Address Manager first and then connect to them later.
