Before you configure the service node information in the Distributed DDNS Application Node, ensure that you have at least one service node deployed. For more information on deploying service nodes, refer to Installing the Distributed DDNS Service Node.


Service status

Under each service, a setting icon appears with a colour that indicates the status of that service. The status of each service is monitored by the Distributed DDNS UI every 3 minutes, meaning that it can take up to 3 minutes for the actual status to appear in the UI.

The following icons represent the statuses of the service:

Configuring services on the service node

  1. Click the Settings icon under one of the following services to configure:
    • DDNS Receiver—manages the service that listens to and processes the DNS update messages sent from the client.
    • DDNS Processor—manages the service that retrieves the DNS update messages from the queue and sends the message to the DNS server to be written to the database.
    • Queue—manages the internal service that is used by the Distributed DDNS receiver and the Distributed DDNS resolver.
    • Anycast—manages the Anycast configuration service. You can configure BGP, OSPF, and OSPFv3 Quagga service.
