MS DNS / Powershell Script Question

MS DNS / Powershell Script Question

MS DNS / Powershell Script Question


I am trying to use the following Powershell code to bulk import DNS A records into Windows 2008 DNS:
Import-Csv .\thosts.csv | foreach{Add-DnsServerResourceRecordA -Name $_.name -ZoneName xxxxx.com -AllowUpdateAny -CreatePtr -IP $_.ip -Computername xxxxxxx}

My CSV file looks like this:
Name, IP

It runs successfully, but the DNS name ends up being ABQVMP01.xxxxx.com.xxxxx.com, instead of ABQVMP01.xxxxx.com. I have looked for something to control this in the command syntax, but do not see anything: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module...

We are running AD and DNS at the 2008 level. Powershell is version 5.1. I am running this as a domain admin.

Thanks in advance and happy to answer any more questions,

RE: MS DNS / Powershell Script Question

1. Have you tried using the FQDN ABQVMP01.xxxxx.com in the CVS file?
2. It is never a good idea to reveal your public IP addresses in forums and such.

Hi Iggsterman,

Thanks for taking time to respond.

FQDN in the CSV does not work, but using the -IPV4Address switch vs. -IP did tjhe trick.

(The IP is private)
