    PTR records have been added to OnApp DNS in OnApp version 5.3.

    I believe this is a fairly important feature, in our case we would simply like a way for the customer to set it, and we would synchronise it into our standard DNS infrastructure.

    Agreed. We would want some sort of configurable RPC call initiated by the CP server, once a VM has been queued for creation.


    This call could be to a secured https URL hosting a script to update DNS based on submitted parameters.

     

    Eg. https://scripthost.tld/scriptname?dnszone=nn.yy.pp.in-addr.arpa&rrhost=VMassignedIP&rrdata=VMrequestedhostname

    Ideally, this would be separate required provisioning step, which could fail on negative feedback from the called script. (Eg. the hostname/IP combination might be taken already)

     

    Disclaimer: I am no security expert... The proposed URL scheme is just for inspiration...

    I think this is a really importante feature to add to OnApp. I would suggest maybe using a different third party software for this implementation. Maybe you should take a look at PowerDNS.

    It would be enough with a hook point for us at least, that way we could run our own code to verify and update the PTR record.

    Or even OnApp Cloud DNS, if it would be added with PTR record support, it would make things much easier for both End User and Admin.

    Related feature request regarding PTR records in OnApp DNS. Those functionalities could be combined.

    This is a massive gap in the OnApp control panel. It is already a common feature for any of the big IaaS providers.

    rDNS support for DNS services is planned and we will update when there is further news.
