Global Protect and DNS configuration

L3 Networker

Hi All,


I have a question regarding Global protect and DNS. In the Global protect configuration we can only configure 2 DNS servers in the Agent>Network Services. Is there anyway additional DNS servers can be configured? We have more than 2 DNS servers in the estate and would like to ensure more than the 2 are used. What is the structure that others have used - just accepted that 2 is enough?

We also have many dns boxes, prob 20 or so but they all replicate so a primary and backup suffice here... just use servers on different network segments and the likelihood of both failing at the same times is pretty slim...

I have seen clients mostly with 2 DNS servers and they use those both in GP.

As these DNS servers are on different network and physically in different  Data Centres  so using 2 DNS server is good for GP.
