A DNS zone of authority represents part of the DNS namespace (public or internal) that is managed by one or more DNS servers. DNS zones contain resource records and can have settings applied to them.
DNS Zones in Address Manager
All DNS zones from a Read-Only Managed Windows server are imported into a view that you specified when you added the DNS server. The following objects are added in Address Manager during an import:
- All supported resource records, provided the IP networks exist in Address Manager (in the case of host records).
- Zone level settings are added as DNS deployment options at the zone level.
- Server level settings are added as DNS deployment options at the server level.
- The appropriate deployment role or roles are added at the zone level.
For information on adding, editing, and deleting DNS zones, refer to Adding DNS Zones.
