fqdn as destination address in static route

L1 Bithead



How can we add a fqdn object as destination in static route in virtual router.


Thanks in advance,

Hello @yelfilali 

I would be surprised if this is possible at all. A fqdn could result in 0, 1, 2, ... IP addresses. If the result could be ambiguous, best way is to not use/allow these input types.
