Bind the DNS service to the virtual server
For the DNS server to respond to DNS requests, the service representing the DNS server must be bound to the DNS virtual server.

At the command prompt, type the following commands to bind the DNS service to the load balancing virtual server and verify the configuration:
- bind lb vserver <name> <serviceName> - show lb vserver <name>
> bind lb vserver Vserver-DNS-1 Service-DNS-1 Done > show lb vserver Vserver-DNS-1 Vserver-DNS-1 (0.0.0.0:0) - DNS Type: ADDRESS State: DOWN Last state change was at Fri Jul 2 10:32:28 2010 Time since last state change: 0 days, 00:12:16.80 Effective State: DOWN ARP:DISABLED Client Idle Timeout: 120 sec Down state flush: ENABLED Disable Primary Vserver On Down : DISABLED No. of Bound Services : 1 (Total) 0 (Active) Configured Method: LEASTCONNECTION Mode: IP Persistence: NONE 1) Service-DNS-1 (10.102.29.41: 53) - DNS State: DOWN Weight: 1 Done >
