Is there a utility that allows remote editing of records on a Microsoft DNS server FROM LINUX? I know you can edit the records using DNSCMD but that is only usable on Window, is there something similar to that?

Depending on how you setup your authentication/authorization there is the ability to use Dynamic DNS. For example I have my puppet server calling nsupdate to update a particular DNS zone host on my Windows server. In another answer I provided example usage of nsupdate.
