Deploy PowerDNS for Designate

Deploy PowerDNS for DesignateΒΆ

PowerDNS server can be used by Designate as its underlying backend. This section describes how to configure an existing or deploy a new PowerDNS server for Designate.

The default PowerDNS configuration for Designate uses the Designate worker role. If you need live synchronization of DNS zones between Designate and PowerDNS servers, you can configure Designate with the pool_manager role. The Designate Pool Manager keeps records consistent across the Designate database and the PowerDNS servers. For example, if a record was removed from the PowerDNS server due to a hard disk failure, this record will be automatically restored from the Designate database.
