Amazon Route 53 is a scalable cloud DNS web service hosted in Amazon Web Services (AWS). When Cloud Discovery & Visibility (CDV) imports DNS resource record data into BlueCat Address Manager for Route 53 resources, it creates a private and public Route 53 DNS view in Address Manager. CDV populates those areas with associated zone, subzones, and resource records.
For example, say you have an AWS Route 53 private hosted zone with multiple DNS resource records:
When CDV imports those records into Address Manager, it creates a Route 53 private view and populates it with the appropriate Route 53 private hosted zone data.
- If an IP address is associated to an A or AAAA record and the IP address exists within an imported VPC network from AWS, a Host record is created in Address Manager. If the IP address does not exist within an imported VPC network, a Generic record is created in Address Manager.
- If a CNAME, SRV, or MX hostname does not exist within Address Manager, an external host record is created based on the hostname in Address Manager.
