On the DNS Zone tab, you can add existing DNS Zones from Address Manager to work with.

The DNS Zones tab lists the forward zones that were added to the database.

To add a zone:

  • In the Add zone name field, enter the name of a DNS Zone that exists within the Address Manager configuration and view specified in the Configuration tab and click Add.

    Note: If the DNS Zone entered does not exist within the specified configuration and view in Address Manager, the following message appears:
    "Zone <name> does not belong to view <view name> in BAM <Address Manager IP>"

To delete a zone:

  • Click  Delete domain (the red trash can) to delete a DNS zone that you no longer want to work with.

Removing data in Address Manager might result in issues with zone configurations. Zone names that contain configuration issues are indicated with an orange exclamation mark next to the name. You can hover over the zone name to display issues with the configuration. To resolve the configuration issues, click the name of the zone and edit the configuration.

Common configuration issues are as follows:

  • The zone is missing a TSIG key.

  • Update to Name permissions of the zone are missing the TSIG key in the identity value.

Note: After adding new zones, the Distributed DDNS system needs to synchronize all the data between nodes in the system in order to successfully process dynamic updates. You can see whether the synchronization process has completed in log messages for the Data and Service nodes. For more details, see Making sure that data is synchronized between Distributed DDNS nodes.

After you add the DNS Zones that you want to work with from Address Manager, click the name of the zone to configure additional DNS Zone details. The Manage Domain <zone name> page appears, where you can enter additional configuration information for the DNS Zone.
