Starting and stopping the DNS update service

To start the DNS update service

  • To start the DNS update service, enter the following:

    DR> dnsupdate start
    Starting...
    SFS DNSupdate SUCCESS V-288-0 DNSupdate started.

    The DR> dnsupdate start command works on the local cluster only.

    When the DNS service is started, FileStore updates the DNS server with a Type-A DNS record that contains a list of VIP addresses for the cluster. Based on this record, the DNS server uses a round-robin method to resolve the domain name with the appropriate VIPs.

    Among the clusters that are configured for the DNS update service, the service can be online on only one cluster at a time. If the DNS update service is online on any of the remote clusters that are configured through replication links, then the service cannot be started on the local cluster.

To stop the DNS update service

  • To stop the DNS update service, enter the following:

    DR> dnsupdate stop
    Stopping...
    SFS DNSupdate SUCCESS V-288-0 DNSupdate stopped.

    The DR> dnsupdate stop command works on the local cluster only.
