Domain Name Server

Network devices on the internet use an IP address to route your request to the site you are trying to reach. Once you connect through a Domain Name Server it manages a database that maps domain names to IP addresses and routes your query to the next appropriate server.

Starting from ArubaOS, IPv6 DNSDomain Name System. A DNS server functions as a phone book for the intranet and Internet users. It converts human-readable computer host names into IP addresses and IP addresses into host names. It stores several records for a domain name such as an address 'A' record, name server (NS), and mail exchanger (MX) records. The Address 'A' record is the most important record that is stored in a DNS server, because it provides the required IP address for a network peripheral or element. server configuration is also supported in addition to IPv4.

You can configure Domain Name Server using the WebUI or CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions..
