Hybrid DNS Update Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Gateway

The Hybrid DNS Update Adaptive Application performs instant updates to authoritative DNS data in the target server platforms on specific zones as identified by the server with the Primary or Hidden Primary DNS role. All changes are updated in Address Manager before they are applied to the specified DNS server platform.

Changes are always applied immediately in the DNS authority. There might be delays after the change as been performed, as the changes must propagate throughout the DNS infrastructure before the updated records can be resolved by the clients.
Attention: The update fails if no Primary or Hidden Primary DNS role exists within the target zone.
