DNS Server

The 2020 IMG can be configured to execute DNS lookups and queries to multiple Domain Name System (DNS) Servers. To accomplish this, the 2020 IMG must know about all the individual DNS Servers that are in a specific domain. Use this object to notify the 2020 IMG which servers to communicate with for DNS related functionality. Information such as the DNS Servers name and IP address is entered into this object. To create the DNS Server object, right click on the DNS Servers and select New DNS Server.

Maximum Objects

Up to three individual DNS Server objects can be created under one DNS Servers object. However, this is a shared resource with ENUM Server Sets. The max for both objects total is 15.

Note: Each DNS Client will allow only three DNS Servers to be configured. (Primary, Secondary, Tertiary)

 

Related Topics and Dependencies

Once the DNS Servers and DNS Server objects have been configured, the 2020 IMG must be configured as a client to the DNS servers created. To configure the 2020 IMG as a DNS Client see DNS Client link.
