Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

To the existing DNS I will need to add a CNAME. So that a web server in one country can be easily moved to another country. I'm using 2003 server

I will need to add the following:

  • domain:
  • currentname 212.90.x.x
  • newname: CNAME

I went to the Primary DNS server. I went to I've pressed new CNAME I've added the information above.

Is this the correct way?

Yes, thats pretty much it. There isn't much to adding records in Server 2003, just make sure you are adding it to your proper forward lookup zone.
