fqdn issue for aruba central

Hi Everyone. 

We just added 601F firewalls to our network. Before we were using our Cisco core switch as DNS server for our Aruba Central to resolve the hostnames required by Aruba Central. Now we have tried to add DNS (FQDN) entries in our fortinet but it is not working. Can anyone guide how to do it. We just need to resolve all the hostnames locally only. Thanks. 




You can configure the FGT as a DNS server as explained in the guide

Enable the service on the FGT interface you want to query and than create the DNS database with the local domains you need. On the mode you can choose Recursive or Non-Recursive, depending if you want to forward the request to the DNS server for entries that are not specified in the DNS DB.
