Set DNS lookup priority

You can set the lookup priority to either DNS or WINS. This option is used in the SSL VPN mode of operation.

Set the lookup priority to DNS by using the CLI

At the command prompt, type the following commands to set the lookup priority to DNS and verify the configuration:

-  set dns parameter -nameLookupPriority (DNS | WINS)  
-  show dns parameter  

Example:

> set dns parameter -nameLookupPriority DNS
 Done
> show dns parameter
            .
            .
            .
        Name lookup priority : DNS
            .
            .
            .
 Done

Set lookup priority to DNS by using the GUI

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > DNS.
  2. In the details pane, under Settings, click Change DNS settings.
  3. In the Configure DNS Parameters dialog box, under Name Lookup Priority, select DNS or WINS, and then click OK.

Note

If the DNS virtual server that you have configured is DOWN and if you set the -nameLookupPriority to DNS, the Citrix ADC does not attempt WINS lookup. Therefore, if a DNS virtual server is not configured or is disabled, set the -nameLookupPriority to WINS.
