UCMDB without DNS?

Jump to solution

Hello All,

Is it supported to install UCMDB and UD (2018.11) in an environment where there is no DNS server available?
If so, please let me know which settings should be handled with care during (and after) the installation.

(It is a pilot where customer would like to manage name resolution via hosts file.)

Thank you,
Daniel

there is not very popular concept in the system administration, where dns server is not set unless it is really required. This way the products would never fail because some DNS is not resolving the database or another endpoint. I have seen enterprises cripled and stop working because of such reasons.

UCMDB doesn't require anywhere DNS. If you put the IP Address of the database in the UCMDB installation wizard and the IP Address of the UCMDB on the DFP installaiton wizard everything would work fine.

Hello Petko,

Although I could not find DNS server as a prerequisite in the deployment guide, I was not sure if it is required or not.
Thank you for your quick confirmation!

Best regards,
Daniel
