Are you asking about entrys or entities?  never heard of an "enties" - I'm sure it was a typo

dnscmd is a command-line tool that will allow you to perform DNS operations such as creating and deleting DNS entries in bulk.  Sample syntax shown here: http://www.petri.co.il/dnscmd_command_in_windows_2000_2003.htm

Here is the deal, I did mean entries.  I want to change my DNS settings on all my servers to two new IP addresses without having to logon to every server.  I looked at http://www.petri.co.il/dnscmd_command_in_windows_2000_2003.htm, but I think that is for a DNS server itself.

I assume this is because your server are statically assigned so that you can't push out the new DNS server IPs via DHCP, yes?

Use PSExec to remotely execute netsh on each server in question, put your server names into a text file, one per line.  Here's your netsh syntax: http://www.petri.co.il/configure_tcp_ip_from_cmd.htm (Daniel Petri's site is the best ever.)
