Hello,

Is there a way to delegate all subzones to a name server instead of creating an individual delegation for each subzone one by one.

Thanks

Hello There,

 

Unfortunately no. Take it this way :

 

-> Your DNS server is authoritative for abc.com.

-> You have an entry for www.abc.com.

-> But you're also defining *.abc.com delegated to external.server.

-> Now you're querying for www.abc.com.

-> How do you expect the server to handle that ?

 

PS : Infoblox won't let you create such conflicts in the first place(Now if you create www.abc.com as a delegation within abc.com, www.abc.com A record would be auto deleted from abc.com's zone DB).

 

So Delegations has to be specific & in bind you can't create wildcard delegations. I recommend automating this as a workflow using REST APIs(Create delegations quickly from a text file etc). Good luck,

 

Best regards,
