Manage Records

There are currently two ways to manage records in the VinylDNS portal. This covers managing individual records through their associated zone. To manage multiple records, possibly across zones, you can use the Batch Change area of the portal.

Current supported record types in Zones are: A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, PTR, NS, TXT, SPF, SRV, and SSHFP.

To manage records in a zone go to the Zones section of the portal and select the View button that corresponds with the zone you want to manage. The Manage Records tab will be the active tab by default. Once you are in the Manage Records tab of the zone, you can create new records sets or update or delete existing record sets.

The Records pane, below the Recent Record Changes pane, lists record sets. Record sets are records that have the same name but different record data. Not all record types support record sets.

When you make any change, it will be immediately queued for processing. Typically processing happens in a second or two. You may need to select the Refresh button if you don’t see the change reflected in the portal.

If for any reason the change failed, you can view the change in the Recent Record Changes pane at the top of the screen, or look at the Change History tab to see what went wrong. The Additional Info column will contain details of the change failure.

Sync Zones

If you make changes to the records in a zone outside of VinylDNS you must manually sync the zone so VinylDNS is aware of those records. Use the Sync Zone button in the Records pane.
