Hi everyone

I was wondering if it was possible to do DNS site affinity based on multiple A records.

The idea would be to have multiple A records for a service and based on sites/services the order provided to the client is adjusted. (Similar to subnet affinity).

Or do we still rely on global load balancers like Cisco GSS to provide site based affinity for DNS A records?

How do you deal with multiple instances of a service globally distributed were you want to point to a local IP address.

Thanks for that Matt. I didn’t know that setting even existed.
