How to create a dns record via active directory

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Does anybody know how to create a valid dns record in the active directory?

I can get the record to show up in adsiedit using the attached code, and all attributes are identical apart from the actual dnsRecord property but the record does not appear in microsoft dns

can anyone shed any light?
Dim base As String = "LDAP://DC=******.co.uk,CN=MicrosoftDNS,dc=domaindnszones,DC=*****,DC=co,DC=uk"

Dim ent = New DirectoryEntry(base, "username", "password")

        Dim de = ent.Children.Add("DC=testing", "dnsNode")
        'not sure what to put so just try an ip address
