Management Common Objects Description Summary

DNS Servers: You can add, modify, and delete DNS server objects. A DNS server object can contain a set of up to three DNS server definitions for Extreme devices to use when resolving domain names to IP addresses.

  • The Domain Name System (DNS) translates human-friendly domain names into IP addresses. You can supply external DNS server IP addresses or use Extreme routers to provide proxy DNS services for every local network under their control. The DNS service transparently proxies DNS requests and responses to and from internal or external DNS servers.

NTP Servers: You can add, modify, and delete an NTP server object with which Extreme devices can synchronize the time on their system clocks.

SNMP Servers: You can add, modify, and delete SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) server objects. This industry-standard protocol allows you to monitor networks. You can configure a set of up to three SNMP server definitions to which Extreme devices can send SNMP traps and unsolicited messages, and from which they can receive SNMP queries.

Syslog Servers: You can add, modify, and delete syslog assignments objects. A syslog server object contains a set of up to four syslog server definitions to which Extreme devices can save syslog entries.
