The following steps will create a DNS Load Balancer service based on the load balanced records (LBRs) you create. LBRs direct how DNS Load Balancer should balance the traffic to your application. An LBR uses IP endpoints, pools, monitors, and regions to create this logic, so you must also create one or more of each. You can create an LBR a) bottom-up (create the LBR after you've created the other items) or b) top-down (create the pieces as required while building the logic for the LBR). For more information, see the geography traffic routing example shown in the DNS Load Balancer Portal User's Guide.
- Click the DNS Load Balancer tab in the Cloud Services navigation menu.
- On the DNS Load Balancer tab, click the Configure Service button.
- On the Service overview tab, enter the zone and optionally the division.
- Build one or more load balanced records (LBRs). Your choice of top-down vs. bottom-up LBR construction will determine which tab you visit next. Each of the tabs is explained in the following articles:
- Finally, to use DNS Load Balancer to provide global DNS traffic management, you need to delegate authority for specific hostnames from your primary DNS server to the DNS Load Balancer service. Use the following DNS Load Balancer servers:
