Really simple,

I need to create a CNAME within DNSCMD.

It's got to delete the old record and then create the new record. Any idea how or does someone have a decent guide?

Thanks

Alex

Delete a record:

dnscmd dns-server-name /recorddelete yourdns.com dnsnameclient CNAME

Add a record:

dnscmd dns-server-name /recordadd yourdns.com CNAME cnameclient.yourdns.com

dns-server-name= your dns server name
yourdns.com = your root dns server Zone Name and Node Name
dnsnameclient = name of the record you want to delete
cnameclient.yourdns.com = FQDN CNAME of new record

That should be it I think ... Been a while ...
