Cisco CNS Network Registrar v6.1 includes the following new features: The regional cluster provides central management capability in Cisco CNS Network Registrar. The regional cluster serves as the aggregate management server for up to 100 local clusters, each of which is a collection of DNS, DHCP, and TFTP servers deployed in the network. With regional cluster, the administrator can configure and control the local clusters from a centralized location, thus enabling coordination of local cluster management across multiple network domains to provide a consistent and unified IP address policy implementation. Address space management capability simplifies the task of managing address blocks and can be exercised from the regional cluster and is a feature in the regional cluster. Flexible reporting capability allows administrators, from the regional cluster, to collect subnet utilization and lease history information stored in local clusters deployed in the network. This makes the task of collecting usage data simple and virtually effortless. Without an automated solution, the complexity of managing address blocks can be high and the task can be tedious and time-consuming. Cluster management allows central management of address space and global protocol server configuration, such as policies, client classes, and scope templates. With this capability, administrators can create and manage a list of Cisco CNS Network Registrar local clusters using the Web UI on the regional cluster. The Router Interface Configuration (RIC) server manages the router interfaces on Cisco uBR7246VXR and uBR10000 Series. An administrator can view, retrieve, and modify the router description, the primary subnet address on the interface, the secondary subnet address on the interface, IP helper, and address of cable helper, owner, and region where the router is deployed. As changes are made to the router over time, the RIC server will synchronize with the router to incorporate these changes. Users now have the option to have leases allocated by priority or by first available. With priority allocation, each scope will be assigned a priority and leases will be handed out from scope with the higher priority until all the addresses in the scope are exhausted. If first available is selected, Cisco CNS Network Registrar will hand out the address that is first available. The two new DHCP allocation options give the administrator the flexibility to implement a more deterministic address allocation strategy. The IP lease history feature has been enhanced in v6.1 to significantly improve server performance when this feature is enabled. This feature intelligently provides an audit mechanism in Cisco CNS Network Registrar while delivering the high performance and scalability required for handling large networks. To continue support for securing data and operations, Cisco CNS Network Registrar 6.1 enables users to restrict DNS zone transfers based on Transaction Signature (TSIG). With TSIG enabled, user can verify Dynamic DNS update and zone transfer requests and responses to come from an authorized source. To prevent unauthorized query, the restricted query ACLs feature allows the administrator to constraint clients to querying only certain servers based on the source IP address or source network address. Several counters are added in v6.1 to provide more detailed performance measurements for the DNS server. These counters provide more information other than a value between 1 and 10 when gauging the health of the DNS server and can potentially assist with identifying areas in the DNS servers that can be reconfigured to deliver a better throughput. New administrative roles are added to v6.1 to enable Web-based administration for the new features and capabilities.
