IPAM supports five DNS record types. Each of the five DNS Records can be customized as needed.

  • IPAM automatically detects DNS forward and Reverse mismatches.
  • Automatic creation of DNS PTR records when adding new devices into DNS Zones.
  • From this location you can manage all aspects of your domains registration. You can also change your domain name servers.

The following steps detail how to edit DNS Records:

  1. Select a zone then click a DNS Records

  3. Select a single record to Edit or Add a new record to.
  4. If you want to delete a record, select the record and then click Delete. This message will display before you can proceed.
