DNS Failover

Hi Guys, i don't think this possible but i thought i'd ask

I've been asked if at a remote site we can add a primary DNS and have a failover DNS but would it possible for the DNS to fail back to primary once it comes back online

Thanks for the reply Balaji, on further investigation this is the current setup

The Dns is provided to the remote site via a vpn (ASA to ASA)

what we want to happen is if the vpn goes down, can we failover to a public dns service like googles dns, once the vpn is back up can the dns fail back to original vpn dns

i may be not asked before, is this for only DNS Resolution, then why not setup Local DNS Server, even VPN break you still have DNS Servers available locally ?

 

The Dns is provided to the remote site via a vpn (ASA to ASA)  - Most people have redundant VPN Setup if the business more rely on your application and DNS.

 

if that is not possible you need to setup Local DNS Server. is this what you can do ?
