Creating AAAA Records for a Domain Name

Nov 21, 2014

An AAAA resource record stores a single IPv6 address.

To add an AAAA record by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following commands to add an AAAA record and verify the configuration:

  • add dns aaaaRec <hostName> <IPv6Address> ... [-TTL <secs>]
  • show dns aaaaRec <hostName>

Example

 
> add dns aaaaRec www.example.com 2001:0db8:0000:0000:0000:0000:1428:57ab 
 Done 
> show dns aaaaRec www.example.com 
1)      Host Name : www.example.com 
        Record Type : ADNS              TTL : 5 secs 
        IPV6 Address : 2001:db8::1428:57ab 
 Done 
> 
To remove an AAAA record and all of the IPv6 addresses associated with the domain name, type the rm dns aaaaRec command and the domain name for which the AAAA record is configured. To remove only a subset of the IPv6 addresses associated with the domain name in an AAAA record, type the rm dns aaaaRec command, the domain name for which the AAAA record is configured, and the IPv6 addresses that you want to remove.

To add an AAAA record by using the configuration utility

Navigate to Traffic Management > DNS > Records > AAAA Records and create an AAAA record.
