How to set DNS Recursion by using the Root Hints option.
Setting DNS Recursion
Recursion allows a DNS server to return queries about names for which it is not authoritative. Root Hints are the Address Manager equivalent of the Windows recursion setting. Unlike the other server-level settings that Address Manager imports at the Windows server level, the Recursion setting is imported at the view level. If you configured the names and IP addresses of the root name servers on the Root Hints tab of the Managed Windows server, these are added to the Root Hints option in Address Manager.
To set the Root Hints option:
- Select the DNS tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the DNS tab again to ensure you are working with the Configuration information page.
- Click a view. The DNS View page opens.
- Click the Deployment Options tab.
- Click New, then select DNS Option.
- From the Option drop-down menu, select Root Hints.
