Need to import .txt file of our DNS into our DNS zone!

Hi guys

I need to import DNS records that are in a .txt file into our DNS zone. This is urgent as someone accidentally deleted the actual zone, but thankfully we managed to export the list on another server before replication occurred.

I seriously need to re-import this .txt file into DNS again. We have Windows 2008 R2 servers.

Can someone direct me please?

Thank you

Hi Gaurav,

I've looked at this and don't really get it. Sorry. We have an .CSV file which has the following columns:

Column A is 'Name', Column B is 'Type', Column C is 'Data' and Column D is 'Timestamp'.
