static member EnableDnsRoundRobin : bool with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

false if a DNS resolution always returns the first IP address for a particular host; otherwise true. The default is false.

When more than one IP address is associated with a host name, a DNS resolution normally returns only the first IP address. If you set this property to true, then subsequent DNS resolutions will cycle through all available IP addresses for a particular host. This option is useful when a service uses DNS as a load balancing mechanism between servers or server clusters.

The following code example sets this property.
