Obtaining the correct file system IP addresses to use for DNS - Amazon FSx for Windows File Server

Obtaining the correct file system IP addresses to use for DNS

Amazon FSx only registers DNS records for a file system if you are using Microsoft DNS as the default DNS service. If you are using a third-party DNS, you will need to manually setup DNS entries for your Amazon FSx file systems. This section describes how to obtain the correct file system IP addresses to use if you have to manually add the file system to your DNS.

How to obtain file system IP addresses to use for DNS A entries

  1. In the https://console.aws.amazon.com/fsx/, choose the file system that you want to obtain the IP address of to display the file system details page.

  2. In the Network & security tab do one of the following:

    • For Single-AZ 1 file systems:

      • In the Subnet panel, choose the elastic network interface shown under Network interface to open the Network Interfaces page in the Amazon EC2 console.

      • The IP address for the Single-AZ 1 file system to use is shown in the Primary private IPv4 IP column.

    • For Single-AZ 2 or Multi-AZ file systems:

      • In the Preferred subnet panel, choose the elastic network interface shown under Network interface to open the Network Interfaces page in the Amazon EC2 console.

      • The IP address for the preferred subnet to use is shown in the Secondary private IPv4 IP column.

      • In the Amazon FSx Standby subnet panel, choose the elastic network interface shown under Network interface to open the Network Interfaces page in the Amazon EC2 console.

      • The IP address for the standby subnet to use is shown in the Secondary private IPv4 IP column.
