To configure DNS Host (A or AAAA) Records

  1. On the Domain Name System (DNS) server, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click DNS.

  2. In the console tree for your domain, expand Forward Lookup Zones, and then right-click the domain in which Microsoft Communications Server 2010 will be installed.

  3. Click New Host (A or AAAA).

  4. Click IP Address, and then do one of the following:

    • For Enterprise Edition, type the virtual IP (VIP) of the load balancer.

      If you deploy only one Enterprise Edition server that is connected to the topology without a load balancer, type the IP address of the Enterprise Edition server. A load balancer is required if you deploy more than one Enterprise Edition server in a pool.
    • For Standard Edition, type the IP address of the Standard Edition server.

  5. Click Add Host, and then click OK.

  6. To create an additional A record, repeat steps 4 and 5.

  7. When you are finished creating all the A records that you need, click Done.
