Adding Hosts in Zones
You can manage the resource records (RRs) for a host by configuring the host rather than the individual RRs. When you define a host, the DNS server automatically creates an Address (A) RR in IPv4, or an AAAA RR in IPv6, for each address you specify. If you specify one or more aliases for the host, the server also creates a Canonical Name (CNAME) RR for each alias. You can also have the server create a Pointer (PTR) RR for the host in the reverse zone for the host, if the reverse zone exists.
Local Basic or Advanced Web UI
From the Design menu, choose Hosts under the Auth DNS submenu.
This opens the List/Add Hosts for Zone page.
Enter the name of the host and its IPv4 or IPv6 address or comma-separated addresses.
If the host has alias names, enter a comma-separated list.
If you want to create a corresponding Pointer (PTR) RR for the host and you know that the reverse zone for the host exists, check the Create PTR Records? check box.
Click Add Host .
To confirm, from the Design menu, choose Forward Zones under the Auth DNS submenu . This opens the List/Add Forward Zones page.
Click the Resource Records tab to view RR’s for the selected zone.
To create A RRs, alias RRs, and PTR RRs for existing reverse zones in a single operation, use zone name addHost hostname address alias for each host. To list the created zones, use zone name listHosts .
