BlueCat Enterprise DNS
- 1 minute to read
BlueCat Enterprise DNS connects all disparate DNS and DHCP with centralized management of all clients and critical assets.
The BlueCat adapter connection requires the following parameters:
- Host – The URL of the BlueCat management server (e.g., https://bluecat.company.com)
- User Name and Password – Specify valid user name and password, that are dependent on the connection option you have chosen:
- API - User name and password must be created in BlueCat. The user account must have the “API User” privilege assigned. Please see details below.
- Database connection - User name and password with read permissions for the configured database. The best practice is to create a designated user for Axonius usage.
- Verify SSL – Choose whether to verify the SSL certificate of the server.
- Connect to Database - Choose whether to use an API or database connection to fetch data from BlueCat.
- Database Port and Database Name (optional) - Database port and name are mandatory if you have chosen to use database connection to fetch data from BlueCat.
- Choose Instance - If you are using multi-nodes, choose the Axonius node that is integrated with the adapter. By default, the 'Master' Axonius node (instance) is used. For details, see Connecting Additional Axonius Nodes
