BIG IP DNS Synchronization Group

Can we add/mix differnet models of BIG IP DNS e.g. hardware and virtual BIG IP DNS in the same synchronization group ?  Will existing configuration including iquery statistics etc. will be replicated to new device porperly in that case ?

  • Hi,

    The answer to your question is Yes, but you have to meet some requirements as:

    *BIG-IP DNS synchronization group members must be running the same software version

    *Synchronization parameters must be properly defined for all members

    *NTP must be configured on each device

    *Port Lockdown must be set properly for the relevant self IP addresses

    Yor can review additional info in this link:

    When you make the gtm_add from the new device to the primary, it replicates all the DNS configuration that can be replicated.
