Hi mohan_sh,
DNS Scripting http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/ArticleID/37719/37719.html
or if its just a couple of records

You can use dnscmd.exe which is part of support tools to add a A record.
The syntax is like

dnscmd.exe dnsserver /recordadd zonename hostname A ipaddress

Cheers!

PeteLong,
dnscmd PRIMARY /recordadd contoso.COM @ A 1.1.1.1
//sets up the record on the primary server for contoso.COM pointing to the IP 10.1.1.1

see http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/9dec9c21-27d1-4781-9ef8-6555a804a79f.mspx?mfr=true

PeteLong,
From Batch FIle

From
http://cwashington.netreach.net/dep...iptType=command

Script:

The BAT file creates a series of record into DNS.
It uses as input the file LISTA.TXT. In this file you have
to specify the name of the record and the value that
it wil have.

IF you open the BAT file you'll see that you have
to specify also after DNSCMD a server that contain
the zone (SERVERNAME) the parameter /RecordADD, to add the
record and the ZONE where you want to add the record.

You can also specify if the record you want to add
is an HOST or an ALIAS. To do so you have to put
beetween the RECORD_NAME; and the value XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX or alias the value:

A = HOST
CNAME = ALIAS

so the result of the string inside the input.txt result:

RECORD_2_ADD;A;IP_ADDRESS

OR

RECORD_2_ADD;CNAME;ALIAS_WHERE_POINT


BATCH FILE:
********

for /f "tokens=1-3 delims=;" %%a in (input.txt) do (
dnscmd SERVERNAME /RecordAdd ZONE_WHERE_ADD_RECORD %%a %%b %%c >>insert.log)
