Default Round Robin DNS

Hi Folks,

I searched the forums, but I didmn't find anything on round robin DNS configuration under ISPConfig.

I am migrating an existing zone/domain from a different DNS server to my ISPConfig DNS server.

Currently, we have this in the zone file for round-robin DNS 'load balancing' of an FTP server:

; RR DNS with short TTL
ftp 30 a
30 a

(Sorry for the formatting, evidently there is no way to use a fixed font or turn off formatting here...)

Though I realize this is less than perfect load balancing, it works for this application.

How can I do this in ISPconfig?

Either you add two A records in in the ISPConfig DNS manager or you add them manually at the end of the zonefile of this domain.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Thanks Till,

I found it impossible to enter another A record via the web interface, so I added the two A records at the end of the /var/named/chroot/var/named/pri.domain.tld file like so:

ftp 30 A
ftp 30 A

This also gave me the opportunity to specify a fairly-short 30 second TTL value.

Thanks again,
