You can upload your DNS mapping file on VMware Aria Operations for Networks to provide information about flows between physical devices. The supported file formats are the Bind and CSV file format. Ensure that you have placed these files in a single ZIP file.

Note: VMware Aria Operations for Networks does not support password-protected ZIP files.
