The ibm_dns_secondary resource represents a single secondary DNS zone managed on SoftLayer. Each record created within the secondary DNS service defines which zone is transferred, what server it is transferred from, and the frequency that zone transfers occur at. Zone transfers are performed automatically based on the transfer frequency set on the secondary DNS record.

Example Usage

resource "ibm_dns_secondary" "dns-secondary-test" {
    zone_name = ""
    master_ip_address = ""
    transfer_frequency = 10
