About the DNS update set command

Use the DR> dnsupdate set command to configure the DNS update service. If no replication links have been added to the DNS update configuration, the configuration parameters apply to the local cluster only. If replication links have been added, the configuration parameters are applied to both the local and the remote cluster.

Make sure that the DNS update service is offline before you set configuration parameters. If the service is online on a cluster, the parameters cannot be set on that cluster.

Table: DNS update set command arguments



set dns_server

Sets the IP address of the DNS server where name resolution records are uploaded.

See Configuring the DNS update service.

set domain_name

Sets the domain name that is associated with the DNS server. This domain specifies the service that is hosted on the cluster. Clients use the domain name to access the cluster's service.

See Configuring the DNS update service.

set keyfiles

Sets the SCP path to the transaction signature (TSIG) key files for the DNS server. These files are used to send secure updates to the DNS server. Once this path is provided, FileStore keeps a local copy of key files on each node of the cluster.

See Configuring the DNS update service.

set addreplink

Configures the specified replication link with the same DNS update parameters as on the local cluster.

The DR> dnsupdate set addreplink command does not create replication links, it only configures them for the DNS update service.

Replication links are created using the Replication> config command. See for the Symantec FileStore Replication Guide for more information.

See Configuring the DNS update service.

set delreplink

Removes a replication link from the DNS update configuration.

See Configuring the DNS update service.
