Configure an authoritative DNS service

When you configure the Citrix ADC appliance as an authoritative DNS server, it accepts DNS requests from the client and responds with the IP address of the data center to which the client should send requests.

Note: For the Citrix ADC appliance to be authoritative, you must also create SOA and NS records. For more information about SOA and NS records, see Domain Name System.

To create an ADNS service by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following commands to create an ADNS service and verify the configuration:

add service <name> <IP>@ ADNS <port>  

show service <name>

Example:

add service Service-ADNS-1 10.14.39.21 ADNS 53

show service Service-ADNS-1
