Separate SNIP for DNS servers

Jordan Hamilton

Recommended Posts

We recently purchased Citrix Gateway and after adding our DNS servers, the effective state of all three is labeled as down, although I can ping them from the NSIP and SNIP.


These DNS servers are in a subnet that I do not manage, however. The SNIP for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops is in X.Y.80.0/24, the NSIP is in X.Y.5.0/24, and the DNS servers are in X.Y.20.0/24.


My question is, are these name servers effectively down because there isn’t a SNIP in X.Y.20.0/24? If so, is there a way to use the existing SNIP for DNS queries and monitoring?


Thanks in advance for any insight.

If the ADC doesn't have a SNIP int the DNS network (x.y.20.0/24) and you want them to use an existing SNIP in the x.y.80.0/24 (or other subnet), define a route such as:

add route x.y.20.0 x.y.80.1  (Or whatever the x.y.80.z network's gateway is).


This will allow the ADC to use the existing SNIP to reach the 80-network and also use that snip to reach the 20-network via the 80-network.
