Configuring an Authoritative DNS Service

Nov 24, 2014

When you configure the NetScaler 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 NetScaler 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

To modify an ADNS service by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following command:

set service <name> <IPAddress> ADNS <port>

Example

set service Service-ADNS-1 10.14.39.21 ADNS 53

To remove an ADNS service by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following command:

rm service <name>

Example

rm service Service-ADNS-1
