creating CNAME record with same FQDN as existing A records

    Question

  • Hi, I have a small issue and would like your clarification.

    I am installing two exchange servers and have configured two A records for DNS round robin.

    mail.contoso.com   A   132.32.32.1

    mail.contoso.com   A   132.32.32.2

    I have to add an alias(CNAME) with the mail.contoso.com     CNAME      EX2013.contoso.com

    I get the error A new record cannot be created. An alias (CNAME) record cannot be added to this DNS name. The DNS name contains records that are incompatible with the CNAME record.

    What am I not getting?
