Hi, I'm fairly new to NetApp and just have a couple of questions around DNS that I can't right now find in the manuals.
We want to serve CIFS from VFilers only and not from the hosts themselves. So I plan to create a VFiler and put it on the domain. On the hosts themselves, as they are not on the domain and our DNS is secure-updates-only they are not set to dynamically update (in fact they don't require DNS entries of their own at all at the moment).
Is it possible to get the VFiler to do secure dynamic updates for itself when the hosts do not?
If not, are there any obvious pitfalls to my plan?
Static entries would be ok, but as our DR lives on a different subnet it would be great if the VFiler could change its own entry in the event of being brought up on the DR controllers. It's not a show-stopper by any means, I just wondered whether it was possible.
