Configuring DNS settings

 

First we need to create a new DNS zone - please follow these steps:

  1. Open ISL Conference Proxy administration and go to DNS server - Zones.
  2. Click Create new zone.
  3. Set Enable zone to Yes.
  4. Enter cp.domain.com under Domains.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Enter the following under Zone (this is an example for two servers - please note the leading space in the first two lines):
NS ns1

NS ns2

ns1 A {server_address|1}

ns2 A {server_address|2}
  1. Click Save.
  2. Check the following entries:
  • Enable load balancing support 
  • Primary zone for load balancing 
  • Enable GRID server names 
  • Primary zone for GRID server names
  1. Click Save. This zone's status will be displayed below.

You also need to configure your corporate DNS server - glue subdomain records should be added on the DNS servers for domain.com. It should look like this (BIND zone file format):

cp.domain.com IN NS ns1.cp.domain.com
cp.domain.com IN NS ns2.cp.domain.com
ns1.cp.domain.com IN A XXX
ns2.cp.domain.com IN A  ZZZ


Note: Replace XXX and ZZZ with the IP addresses of your ISL Conference Proxy servers
