  • AWS Cloud in NSX Advanced Load Balancer supports AWS DNS by enabling route53_integration in the cloud configuration and does not require this DNS profile configuration.

  • A separate DNS provider configuration (as described in the 'DNS Configuration' section below) is required only for cases where AWS provides the infrastructure service for other clouds.

  • AWS DNS is supported only for North-South DNS provider.

  • CNAME record type is not supported, only A record is supported for AWS DNS.
