How can i create a DNS record for new VM. I have made LINUX VM. Although i am from INTEL domain so did not do any internal settings since do not know LINUX just created VM.  Now user wants dns record x.x.x for the VM name x.x.x.

He says Please add the host x.x.x to the internal DNS. Just this much he has mentioned. So how can i do it without entering into linux environment that is logging inside linux VM, just from outside.

This question is very vague.  

We need to know what kind of DNS server you have and if you have root or admin rights on that server.

First you have to locate the DNS server and tell us if it is Windows / Linux / or whatever.
Then you will need and admin account on it if you intend to create the required DNS record manually.

You do not need to access the VM for this.
Just go into your DNS server under windows and create the record

I am going to assume that your DNS server is running on Windows.  This is what you need to do:

1.  Ask the UNIX/LINUX admin as to what is the hostname of the server (i.e. jupiter.mydomain.local and your DNS zone name is mydomain.local)
2.  Ask business as to what name they want to use for accessing resources on the server (i.e. crm.mydomain.local as the server hosts CRM)
3.  Logon to Server that has the DNS management snap-in or if you have it RSAT installed on your PC
4.  Expand the DNS server, Forward Lookup Zones and right click on mydomain.local
5.  Click on New Host (A record) and enter the server (jupiter) name and IP address
6.  Click on New Alias (CNAME), enter crm for alias name, click on browse and select jupiter from the forward lookup zone for mydomain.local

Now you could access resources on the Linux either by jupiter.mydomain.local or crm.mydomain.local.

My boss told me that " add the host xxx.domain to the internal DNS" means need to add the VM server to DNS and create static record. Please guide me how to add and how to create.

For sake of simplicity just create A record with the name xxx under forward lookup zone for domain "domain"

Just follow instructions above.
