BloxOne DDI allows you to configure an existing on-prem host as a DNS server. The DNS server can then be included in a DNS zone as an Authoritative DNS server. For more information, see Configuring DNS Zones. Based on your licensing, you can enable the DNS service on the on-prem host. For more information on enabling services, see Creating On-Prem Hosts. Once the DNS service has been enabled on the on-prem host, you can configure additional settings on the DNS Servers page. 

The existing list of DNS servers can be viewed at DNS -> DNS Servers. This page does not allow you to create new DNS servers. 

You can also perform the following in this tab:

  • Click to reorder the columns or to select the columns to be displayed.
  • Click  -> Edit or select the check box for the respective record, and then click Edit to modify a DNS server.

  • Select a DNS server to view respective information such as DNS Name, Host IP Address, DNS Config Profile, Description, DNS, DNS Forwarding Proxy, and filter. If you do not want to view the details in the right panel, click .

  • Enter the value that you want to search in the Search text box. BloxOne DDI displays the list of records matching the keyword in the text box.

  • Click  to filter the objects by DNS Name, Host IP Address, On-Prem Host, DNS Config Profile, Description, and tags.
