Command-Line Management of DNS
The DNS Management console provides a GUI interface for working with DNS servers. You can use the console to connect to any Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 running DNS in your organization. If you prefer to work from a command line, you should get familiar with the DNSCMD utility.
You can do virtually any action with DNSCMD that you can do from the DNS Management console. This includes adding and deleting resource records, listing the contents of zones, resetting the DNS service, Directory Integrating a zone, scavenging old dynamic records, and clearing the DNS cache. Armed with a little time and some scripting tools, you can tailor a set of utilities that can do just about any operation that needs doing.
DNSCMD comes with command-line help for options and syntax. The online help contains extensive examples. It's a tool worth learning if you are going to manage a number of DNS servers.
