  • Delete that record from dnsmgmt.msc. After that delete that from adsiedit.msc. If you are not able to see that record from adsiedit (10000 is the limit due to LDAP buffer size) use sysinternal adexplorer for deleting that record.

    When we are deleting the dns record from dnsmgmt that is not actually deleted . That's gone in inactive.

    run

    repadmin /syncall /aepd

    wait for completing the replication & then create that record.

    Let us post the result.Difference can be seen only from GUI(like:dnsmgmt).

  • Are the record get overriden and getting timestamp?.You can try this on the record go to security and remove system and others from the permission and leave the administrator to update the record.

  • Hi,

    What are you trying to achive by creating record in CAPS letter ??

    As far as I know DNS is NOT case sensitive, however it is case aware.

    DNS records are not case sensitive so I that it does not matter if the record is in lowercase or uppercase.

    I dont want to achive anything. In some region SAP admin requted to me that they need a record with all uppercase. SAP admin might be achive something.

    I think that it would be better to first understand what SAP admin would like to achieve. The DNS resolution is possible using uppercase or lowercase records so I don't see why the SAP admin would like to update the record itself.

  • is there anyway to create a "A" record with all upper case which was previously all lower case.

    That is static record. Also there is no computer associate with that A record.

    If I am not wrong, you should remove the current entries and re-create them.

    This link should be helpful: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/195598-36-change-entries-lowercase

    However, I don't really see any advantage of doing since from DNS servers side. I think you need to get more details from the SAP admin of what he is trying to achieve.

  • Thanks all of you. Just want to add , if I created a new "A" record which seems ok but if I delete an old "A" record & recreate that problem seems there.
