The following steps detail how to add a DNS Server to the IPAM Web Console. All DNS servers must already exist as nodes in your installation.

  • Windows DNS Server 2003, Server 2008, and Server 2012 are supported.
  • Bind DNS 9.1 through 9.10+ are supported. Bind DNS 9.10+ and later are not supported.
  • Some environments may require you to grant read-only access to a non-administrator account. For more information see Granting read only access to non-administrator account.
