Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Use Windows PowerShell cmdlets to create a server resource record.
Is there was a way to script the creation of my internal server resource records for my Lync deployments?
If you're running Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012, use the Add-NewDNSServerResourceRecord cmdlet (the following is a one-line command that is broken for the webpage):
Add-DnsServerResourceRecord –zone Contoso.local –name _sip –domainname sip.contoso.local –weight 0 –priority 0 –port 5060 –computername Contoso-DC
VERY HANDY! I'll keep this one in my Lync scripting toolbox, thanks!
Glad to be of assistance. I think I got the Port number wrong but it's one of the best additions to the Cmdlet lineup from Microsoft. I've been itching to have this for years :)
Thanks for bringing attention to the DNS cmdlets! Maybe we'll get a multi-line TXT record feature in the next release. 😊
