Cato Management Application Notification: New DNS Settings Policy For SDP Users

DNS Settings in Your Account

Starting 6th August, Cato will gradually roll out a new ordered policy for DNS settings. In addition to the default account DNS settings, the DNS Settings Policy lets you define specific DNS settings for SDP users and User Groups. Your previous DNS settings will be migrated to the new policy, there is no impact on the settings and functionality of your account.

What Are the Changes to My Account? 

Cato is automatically migrating your current DNS settings defined for SDP users and User Groups to rules in the DNS Settings policy. The new rules in the DNS Settings policy maintain the same DNS settings.  

  • For accounts that only use the Cato DNS service (the default setting):  
    • No rules are created in the DNS Settings policy 
       
  • For accounts that have account level DNS settings configured (on the Network > DNS Settings screen):   
    • No rules are created in the DNS Settings policy
       
  • For accounts that have DNS settings configured for individual SDP users or User groups:  
    • For each DNS setting configured at the User/User group level, a rule is created in the DNS Settings Policy. Users or User groups that match the DNS settings are automatically included in this rule  
    • When there are more than 10 individual SDP users with the same DNS settings configured, a new User Group is created and assigned to a rule 
       
  • For accounts that have account level DNS settings configured (on the Network > DNS Settings screen) and different DNS settings for individual SDP users or User Groups:  
    • An ordered rule base is created to reflect the individual SDP user DNS settings 
    • Any users not in a rule, receive the account DNS level settings

What is the Impact to My Account?

There is no impact on your account when Cato automatically migrates your DNS setting to the new DNS Settings Policy. All your DNS settings will remain the same.
