Requirements Checklist
Reverse Lookup
Before you begin, make sure the following requirements are met:
*The domain name service (DNS) used by the host machines that participate in the territory must be capable of bi-directional name resolution. This means that your DNS must be able to resolve the name of the host machine to the correct IP address and also be able to resolve the machine's IP address back to the correct name. Verify the name and IP address of the host machine by using the commands described in Reverse Lookup.
When a host machine uses the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to dynamically obtain its IP address, many DNS servers will not return the correct name for a given IP address. In this case, you must contact your IT department or your network administrator and ask that a static IP address be assigned to the host machine.
*Each Broker must have a name that is unique within the territory.
*Each territory must have a unique name.
*A Broker must not belong to another territory. To become part of the new territory, it must first leave its current territory. (For similar reasons, you cannot merge territories. To create a single territory where two existed before, the Brokers in one territory must leave it and then join the second territory.)
*All Broker Servers that participate in the territory must have the same SSL capabilities. That is, they must all be SSL-enabled or non-SSL enabled.
