System Administration Guide: IP Services

ProcedureHow to Add IPv6 Addresses to DNS

  1. Log in to the primary or secondary DNS server as Primary Administrator or as superuser.

    The Primary Administrator role includes the Primary Administrator profile. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Chapter 2, Working With the Solaris Management Console (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Edit the appropriate DNS zone file by adding AAAA records for each IPv6-enabled node:

    host-name  IN   AAAA 	host-address
  3. Edit the DNS reverse zone file and add PTR records:

    host-address IN   PTR   hostname

    For detailed information on DNS administration, refer to System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (DNS, NIS, and LDAP).
