Microsoft DNS

Overview

Morpheus integrates directly with Microsoft DNS to automatically create DNS entries for Instances provisioned to a configured Cloud or Group. Morpheus also syncs in Microsoft DNS Domains for easy selection while provisioning, or setting as the default Domain on a Cloud or Network.

Add Microsoft DNS Integration

Microsoft DNS can be added in the Administration or Infrastructure sections:

  1. In Administration -> Integrations, select + New Integration

  2. In Infrastructure -> Networks -> Services, select Add Service

  3. Provide the following:

    TYPE

    Microsoft DNS

    NAME

    Name for the Integration in Morpheus

    DNS SERVER

    IP or resolvable hostname of DNS server

    USERNAME

    DNS provider username

    PASSWORD

    DNS provider user password

    ZONE

    (Optional) Enter a dns zone to limit scope

    CREATE POINTERS

    Enabled to create A records during provisioning

  4. Once saved the Integration will be added and visible in both Administration -> Integrations and Infrastructure -> Networks -> Services

Note

All fields can be edited after saving.

Domains

Once the integration is added, Microsoft DNS Domains will sync and listed under Infrastructure -> Networks -> Domains.

Note

Default Domains can be set on Networks and Clouds, and can be selected when provisioning. Additional configuration options are available by editing a domain in Networks -> Domains

Configuring Microsoft DNS with Clouds and Groups

DNS Integrations are available in the DNS Integration dropdown in Cloud and Group settings.

Morpheus will register Instances with the DNS provider when provisioned into a Cloud or Group with a DNS Integration added.

Add DNS Integration to a Cloud

  1. In Infrastructure -> Clouds edit the target Cloud.
  2. Expand the Advanced Options section.
  3. In the DNS Integration dropdown, select an available DNS Integration.
  4. Save Changes

Add DNS Integration to a Group

  1. In Infrastructure -> Groups select the target Group.
  2. Select the Edit button for the Group
  3. Expand the Advanced Options section.
  4. In the DNS Integration dropdown, select an available DNS Integration.
  5. Save Changes

Note

Instances provisioned into a Cloud or Group with a DNS Integration added will be registered as instancename.domain with the DNS Provider during provisioning, and de-registered at teardown.
