Create a DNS service
A DNS service is a representation, on the Citrix ADC appliance, of a physical DNS server in the network. A DNS load balancing virtual server sends DNS requests to the DNS server in the network through such a service.
Create a DNS service by using the CLI
At the command line, type the following commands to create a DNS service and verify the configuration :
- add service <name> <IP> <serviceType> <port> - show service [<name>]
add service Service-DNS-1 10.102.29.41 DNS 53 show service Service-DNS-1 Service-DNS-1 (10.102.29.41:53) - DNS State: DOWN Last state change was at Fri Jul 2 10:14:32 2010 Time since last state change: 0 days, 00:00:13.550 Server Name: 10.102.29.41 Server ID : 0 Monitor Threshold : 0 Max Conn: 0 Max Req: 0 Max Bandwidth: 0 kbits Use Source IP: NO Client Keepalive(CKA): NO Access Down Service: NO TCP Buffering(TCPB): NO HTTP Compression(CMP): NO Idle timeout: Client: 120 sec Server: 120 sec Client IP: DISABLED Cacheable: NO SC: OFF SP: OFF Down state flush: ENABLED 1) Monitor Name: ping-default State: DOWN Weight: 1 Probes: 3 Failed [Total: 3 Current: 3] Last response: Failure - Probe timed out.
