I have 2 Datacenters and want to load between them. I have a GTM and a pair of LTM in each DC. On my internal DNS I have a condition WIDEIP forward zone pointing to the GTM'S in each DC. I create my WIPS on the GTM and select the pool from the LTM. My question is, How does the dns A record get into the WIDEIP zone on the GTM (do I manually create it? To view the WIDEIP zone on the GTM I navigate to xonerunner.
Wide-IP is actually a listener object. As soon as you create a new wide-ip, GTM automatically creates its A record to the matching zone using bind. You can view the a zone's SOA, NS and A records using zonerunner tab. Zonerunner is nothing but a GUI to manage bind engine.
On your DNS (LDNS), you either setup a delegation towards GTM or create forwarding pointing to GTM, depending on the flavor of your setup.
I have external Linux DNS server for my domain.com.
Now i Created
Cname in linux server
www.domain.com. IN CNAME www.wip.domain.com
delegate authority for the wip.domain.com
wip IN NS gtm1.domain.com. IN NS gtm2.domain.com.
gtm1.domain.com. IN A 192.168.101.254 gtm2.domain.com. IN A 192.168.102.254
Now my query is,
**** But When I request for somedomain test.domain.com, what will happen, since linux server dont has the cname for test.domain.com, Should i create CNAME and delegate for all the sundomains?***
