Local and remote NameServers

Before configuring a NameServer, you must know the network location where it is to run. For any network host, you can configure two types of NameServer instances:
*Local — An instance that runs locally on the host where it is defined
*Remote — An instance that references a NameServer that is defined and runs on a machine that is remote from the host where the reference is defined
The purpose of defining a remote NameServer instance is to provide an easy way for having multiple Unified Broker products refer to a controlling NameServer that runs on another machine. You cannot start, stop, obtain status, or modify any properties of a remote NameServer instance other than the host name and port number that it references.
