To simplify configuration for a virtual system, a DNS server profile allows you to specify the virtual system that is being configured, an inheritance source or the primary and secondary DNS addresses for DNS servers, and the source interface and source address (service route) that will be used in packets sent to the DNS server. The source interface and source address are used as the destination interface and destination address in the reply from the DNS server.
A DNS server profile is for a virtual system only; it is not for the global Shared location.
