Configuring the GSS workflow - Adaptive Applications - BlueCat Gateway - 23.1

Global Server Selector Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Gateway

The GSS workflow uses dynamic DNS updates to perform updates and uses the Address Manager API to retrieve configuration information. The GSS Health Check server must have valid Address Manager API credentials configured for use with the GSS workflow. The BlueCat Gateway user account must have API access to Address Manager, full control of GSS data in the gss.bluecat. zone, and full control of the Traffic Steering Tag Group. This account can be an Administrator account.

When GSS performs updates using dynamic DNS, the updates from GSS are authenticated using the TSIG key. To enable this, the GSS workflow requires the following:
  • GSS must be configured with the correct DNS server IP address.
  • The clock on the GSS server and Primary DNS server must be synchronized.
Note: You must first create the status zones before setting the GSS region.
