The DNS service is disabled by default. After you compl ete the DNS configuration, you can start DNS service on a member. You can also disable the DNS service on any Grid member. Be aware that disabling the DNS service on a member removes the NS records from it. If you later re-enable DNS service for this member, the NS records are then restored.
To start DNS service on a member:

  1. From the Data Management tab, select the DNS tab -> Members tab -> member check box -> click the Edit icon.
  2. In the Member DNS Properties editor, click General -> Basic tab, and do the following:
    • LAN1: Select IPv4 to start the DNS service using IPv4 or select IPv6 to start the DNS service using IPv6. Note that for a dual mode member, IPv4 will be selected by default. If you have configured Infoblox Subscriber Services, you can tag the interface with an IP space discriminator in order to support multiple subscribers using the same IP address. Select an IP space discriminator from the IP Space Discriminator drop-down list for LAN1 interface. Note that the IP Space Discriminator field is displayed only for Grid members that have the RPZ license installed. Otherwise, this field is hidden. For information about IP space discriminators, see Adding IP Space Discriminators.
  3. Save the configuration.
  4. Expand the Toolbar and click Start.
  5. In the Start Member DNS Service dialog box, click Yes.
    Grid Manager starts the DNS service on the selected member.

You can stop DNS service on a member by selecting the member check box and click Stop from the Toolbar.
