Can FDNS and collector group be used together


We are currently migrating from Physical servers to VMs for Dynatrace Collector instances. So instead of asking the users to update the host and port details each time we migrate, We want to know if FDNS and collector group can be used to together. If we use FDNS application teams need not have to update the host names each time. And collector group can take care of load balancing. Please let me know if this is a possible option.

please help me out here, I'm not familiar with the term FDNS. do you mean

  • Forward DNS, which is to my understanding the same as DNS
  • Full-Qualified Domain Names (FQDNs)
  • or something different?

either way, you can of course use any hostnames that can be resolved from the machine that the Agents are running on (via DNS, hosts file, ...).
