DNS, can i delete SRV record?

Hi Experts,

I want to undo an SRV record modification that i did but when i try to modify the record i get the error message "the record cannot be updated, the record already exist" so it seems like once i modified the original SRV to it's new value it create a default valued srv record to replace the one i modified. Is this correct? can i just delete the modified version as there is a default one already there....

I did this as per VMware best pratice to slowly decomission a physical DNS Server, this was done by making the DNS Weight value 25 and the DNS Priority value 200 on the SRV record of the system de decommission.

if you delete the SRV record and restart the Netlogon Service on the DC, records will be automatically created again, just make sure dynamic update is enabled
