VRRP and DNS

Hi All,
I am using VRRP on a network and was wondering what the best practices are when it comes to applying DNS entries on the two devices I am using?  I have a DNS entry pointed at the VRRP # IP Address.  

Here's what my config looks like:

VRRP 10 ip address 172.16.10.1 255.255.255.0  (This address has a DNS entry).  
Lets call it : BN-10-VRRP-R1-R2.domain-name.com
I am using two Cisco switches setup with their ip addresses being:

1. 172.16.10.2/24 Master
2. 172.16.10.3/24 Backup

What's the best practice for this setup with regard to DNS?  

Thanks,
R

I would think you already have it!  Using the virtual address will assure you can still reach it should one go offline.

I don't imagine it would hurt to add the switches by real name and IP into DNS so that you can connect directly to a single switch using name should the virtual name/IP not respond.

Configuring network clients can be a chore, especially if there are a large number of them or a lot of itinerant users.  DHCP dynamically manages this process, much to the relief of users and administrators alike!
