This guide shows you how to migrate your DNS zone from Dyn Managed DNS to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. For more information about the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure service, see Overview of the DNS Service. If you are a Dyn Standard DNS customer, see Transfer Dyn Standard DNS to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
If you don’t have an account with Oracle, you can create one for free by signing up for an OCI trial account. If you have any questions on the process, please reach out to our dedicated migrations team at email@example.com.
If you are ready to migrate to OCI, you currently have two options available to migrate your Dyn Managed DNS records into your OCI DNS account.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org where our Migration Team is happy to discuss options for migrating to OCI, including providing the most up to date automated migration tool, based on your unique requirements. Please note, we do not currently support automated migration of Advanced Services.
The following instructions are not recommended for use for accounts with large numbers of zones, or complex Advanced Services requirements. Please reach out to our Migrations team if you have any questions regarding your migrations options or with issues retrieving your Dyn zonefile by emailing email@example.com.
The first step in your migration process from Dyn Managed DNS to OCI DNS is to export a copy of the zone file from Managed DNS.
The system creates and publishes the zone, complete with the necessary SOA and NS records.
Additional OCI documentation on this subject can be found at docs.oracle.com.
It's best pratice to validate that any zone created within OCI and ensure that it is functioning as expected before delagating production traffic. A helpful OCI Blog Post on this subject is called Testing OCI DNS and Traffic Management steering policies before migration.
Note: Prior to delegation, ensure that you replicate Dyn HTTP redirects, Dyn Active Failover, Traffic Management, or Traffic Director with the OCI equivalent.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure does not allow the migration of zones using advanced features in Dyn Managed DNS, but certain features can be replicated in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Use the following guides to replicate applicable services.
