Modify a SmartConnect DNS zone

You can specify a SmartConnect DNS zone and alternate DNS zone aliases that will handle DNS requests for an IP address pool.


  1. Click Cluster Management > Network Configuration > External Network.
  2. Click View/Edit next to the IP address pool that you want to modify.
    The system displays the View Pool Details window.
  3. Click Edit.
    The system displays the Edit Pool Details window.
  4. From the SmartConnect Basic area, specify the SmartConnect DNS zone in the Zone name field.
    The SmartConnect DNS zone should be a fully qualified domain name (FQDN).
  5. Optional: From the SmartConnect Advanced area, specify any aliases for the SmartConnect DNS zone in the SmartConnect Zone Aliases field.
    A SmartConnect Advanced license is required to specify zone aliases.
  6. Click Save Changes.

What to do next

To use the SmartConnect zone you need to configure your DNS infrastructure to delegate the DNS zone. Add a new name server (NS) record pointing at the SmartConnect service IP address, and then add a zone delegation to the new name server for the FQDN of the SmartConnect zone name.
