How can I programmatically add CNAME entries to my DNS configuration? I can add CNAME entries through the DNS console, but I need to be able to dynamically create them.

  1. You can use DNSCMD.exe -- a Support Tools utility that allows entries to be created at the command line.

  2. Windows 2000 Platform SDK (Free from msdn.microsoft.com) will show you how.

  3. WMI Interfaces can mostly read information, but can do some setting in limited circumstances.
