We have some inquries on the Appendix 9 – Cluster name and DNS SRV records of the document- Cisco_VCS_Cluster_Creation_and_Maintenance_Deployment_Guide_X7-1.
In our current network, we have installed TMS on the Window server 2003 R2, however, we faced some problems in seting up the DNS SRV records.
1.Is the window server 2003 R2 support the related DNS SRV record?
2.Anyone has tried to configure the SRV record or NAPTR by the window server 2003 R2? It is beacuse we are confusing in setting up such record.
> 1.The cluster name in your example is lab003.com?
Yes, cluster name use “lab003.com” for this case.
> 2.Is there any DNS configuration is required ? As my endpoints is not able to register to the cluster.
Yes, for H323 Endpoint registration using DNS SRV record, you will need to configure "_h323rs._udp" SRV service and each VCS A-record configuration on DNS.
For SIP, you will need "_sip._tcp", "_sip._udp" or "_sips._tcp" SRV service and each VCS A-record configuration on DNS.
> 3. I am confusing in the 63 of the Cluster creation and maintenance, is it nesscary to configure
>"Endpoints supporting SIP DNS SRV"?
I'm not sure if I correctly understand your question, but not all Endpoint does support SIP proxy configuration with SRV-DNS base addressing.
This is very depend on Endpoint model as well software version.
You should able to configure SRV record on Windows 2003 R2 Server using “Other New Records…”.
From “Other New Records…”, select “Service Location (SRV) and configure SRV record that you like to add.
For example SIP/TCP record.
Port number: 5060
Host offering this service: vcs1.domain.com
Port number: 5060
Host offering this service: vcs2.domain.com
Please note that you need to create two service record separately.
Windows SRV record doesn't support "." after service and protocol, you can just configure service and protocol without "." which add automatically in background.
