F5 Networks Configuring BIG IP DNS: Domain Name System
This course is intended for system and network administrators responsible for installation, setup, configuration, and administration of BIG-IP DNS systems.
Administering BIG-IP; TCP/IP Addressing and Routing, WAN/LAN elements; and Data Center Server redundancy concepts.
This course gives networking professionals a functional understanding of the BIG-IP DNS system as it is commonly used. The course covers configuration
and ongoing management of the BIG-IP DNS system, and includes a combination of lecture, discussion, and hands-on labs.
After completing this course, students should be able to meet the following course objectives:
Provision the BIG-IP system for operation
Back up the BIG-IP system configuration for safekeeping
Describe how the Domain Name System (DNS) resolves host names into IP addresses
Describe how the BIG-IP DNS system can participate in the DNS resolution process
Use DNS Express on the BIG-IP DNS system to accelerate DNS resolution
Cache DNS query responses on BIG-IP DNS to accelerate DNS resolution
Load balance DNS queries to a pool of DNS servers and monitor pool health
Configure the key features of the BIG-IP DNS system to perform intelligent DNS resolution
Describe the LDNS probes used by BIG-IP DNS to support path-based load balancing
Configure a wide IP pool to use a path load balancing method
View and confirm DNS resolution behavior using path load balancing methods
Use static and dynamic load balancing methods to intelligently resolve DNS queries
Use persistence to effectively return one or more clients to the same virtual server on each query
Use manual resume to control certain load balancing behavior in the event of an outage
Configure and use load balancing decision logs to fine-tune and troubleshoot DNS resolution
Configure monitors on the BIG-IP DNS system in support of DNS resolution
Configure BIG-IP DNS to participate in the DNSSEC chain of trust
Configure limit settings on virtual servers, servers, and wide IP pools to temporarily direct client traffic away from resources that may not be performing at certain thresholds of efficiency
Configure iRules on a wide IP to customize intelligent DNS resolution
Describe the other wide IP types provided with BIG-IP DNS
Configure a BIG-IP DNS sync group
Apply all the principles learned throughout the course to configure a BIG-IP DNS system based on hypothetical specifications
