BlueCat Distributed DDNS Administration Guide

BlueCat Gateway

Before the Distributed DDNS Service Node can start processing DDNS updates, you must add the service node to the proxy cluster and configure the Distributed DDNS service.

  1. Select the checkbox next to the service nodes that you wish to configure.
  2. Click Settings and select Distributed DDNS service.
  3. In the configuration window, enter the following information:
        #The name of the Distributed DDNS cluster
        ddns_cluster_name: '<name_of_cluster>'
        #The IP address that the service will bind to
        address: '<ip_address>'
        #The port that the service will listen on
        dnsport: <port>
        #The interval that the service will refresh its configuration refresh interval (seconds)
        update_conf_interval: <interval>
    Where the parameters represent the following:
    • ddns_cluster_name: The name of the Distributed DDNS cluster. This must match the currently selected cluster configured in Cluster information.
    • address: The IP address that the Distributed DDNS service will bind to. If you leave this field blank, the service binds to all interfaces.
    • dnsport: The port that the Distributed DDNS service will listen on. Set this value to 53.
    • update_conf_interval: The interval that Distributed DDNS service will refresh its configuration, in seconds. The default value is 30 seconds
  4. Click Start to enable the Distributed DDNS service.
  5. Click Save to save the Distributed DDNS service configuration and add the service to the Distributed DDNS Service Node.
