Configure DNS for file server location

To synchronize user home folders the appliance needs to correctly address the file servers where the folders are stored. The appliance uses DNS to resolve the file server IP address.

The appliance DNS settings must specify the DNS servers within the Active Directory (AD) and the domain names it should search in order to resolve the short-form file-server addresses used in user AD records.

  1. Select Configuration > DNS and click Edit.
  2. Complete the following DNS Settings:

    • DNS Server IP address.
    • DNS Search Domain.
  3. To add further DNS server details, use the + buttons.

    DNS Server

  4. Click Save to commit your DNS settings.
