We have an A record setup currently for our domain and a cname record setup for www to point to the A record for our site that is hosted offsite. We have a new device in our building that we need to create an A record for using a different IP address. This IP address is one of our external IP addresses from our Internet provider. Is it possible to add the additional A record see below for examples. The IP addresses below are just used as fillers for the examples.

Current A record

A Record = my.domain  A 10.0.1.1    
Cname = www for the my.domain A record

Need to add additional A record:

device.my.domain A 192.168.1.10

Thank you

Without knowing about the exact errors and your zone-configuration it is nearly impossible to answer your question. Also is the name-server you are trying to configure the authoritative one for this domain?
