Configuration for DNS zone resource.

Properties

(click to see Operations )

Name Data Type Permissions Description
zonename <String> Read-write Name of the zone to create.

Minimum length = 1
proxymode <String> Read-write Deploy the zone in proxy mode. Enable in the following scenarios:

* The load balanced DNS servers are authoritative for the zone and all resource records that are part of the zone.

* The load balanced DNS servers are authoritative for the zone, but the Citrix ADC owns a subset of the resource records that belong to the zone (partial zone ownership configuration). Typically seen in global server load balancing (GSLB) configurations, in which the appliance responds authoritatively to queries for GSLB domain names but forwards queries for other domain names in the zone to the load balanced servers.

In either scenario, do not create the zone's Start of Authority (SOA) and name server (NS) resource records on the appliance.

Disable if the appliance is authoritative for the zone, but make sure that you have created the SOA and NS records on the appliance before you create the zone.

Default value: ENABLED

Possible values = YES, NO
dnssecoffload <String> Read-write Enable dnssec offload for this zone.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
nsec <String> Read-write Enable nsec generation for dnssec offload.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
keyname <String[]> Read-write Name of the public/private DNS key pair with which to sign the zone. You can sign a zone with up to four keys.

Minimum length = 1
type <String> Read-write Type of zone to display. Mutually exclusive with the DNS Zone (zoneName) parameter. Available settings function as follows:

* ADNS - Display all the zones for which the Citrix ADC is authoritative.

* PROXY - Display all the zones for which the Citrix ADC is functioning as a proxy server.

* ALL - Display all the zones configured on the appliance.

Possible values = ALL, ADNS, PROXY
flags <Double> Read-only Flags controlling display.
__count <Double> Read-only count parameter

Some options that you can use for each operations:

  • Getting warnings in response: NITRO allows you to get warnings in an operation by specifying the 'warning' query parameter as 'yes'. For example, to get warnings while connecting to the NetScaler appliance, the URL is as follows:

    http:// <netscaler-ip-address> /nitro/v1/config/login?warning=yes

    If any, the warnings are displayed in the response payload with the HTTP code '209 X-NITRO-WARNING'.

  • Authenticated access for individual NITRO operations: NITRO allows you to logon to the NetScaler appliance to perform individual operations. You can use this option instead of creating a NITRO session (using the login object) and then using that session to perform all operations,

    To do this, you must specify the username and password in the request header of the NITRO request as follows:

    X-NITRO-USER: <username>

    X-NITRO-PASS: <password>

    Note: In such cases, make sure that the request header DOES not include the following:

    Cookie:NITRO_AUTH_TOKEN= <tokenvalue>

Mandatory parameters are marked in red and placeholder content is marked in green
