SRV records in Templates

DNS templates do not display all the fields necessary for configuring SRV records. However this is possible by combining the data within the name and content fields.

A typical SRV record contains the following data:

  • A symbolic name, like sip.
  • A protocol, like tcp or udp.
  • A weight, like 100.
  • A port, like 443.
  • A target, like
  • A priority, like 10.

We can combine the information above on the name and content fields like this:

  • The name field contains the symbolic name and protocol information in the following format: _sip._tcp.
  • The content field includes the weight, port and target separated by spaces: 100 443
