action, recordname, TTL, recordtype, rdata, comment, user-defined field name=value, user-defined field name n=value,...
|action||The action to be performed on the record. Valid
values are add,
delete. This column must be present
and must contain a value.
add creates a new resource record.
update changes only the TTL, comment, and user-defined fields for most resource record types. For CNAME records, update changes only the host record to which the CNAME record points. For A records, update ignores any change made to the record’s IPv4 address.
delete deletes resource records. If a record is not found in Address Manager, a file-not-found error is logged in the server log, and error handling options Abort update and Skip records with errors and continue update have no bearing on this action. To delete records that contain multiple IP addresses, specify the address with an * asterisk.
|recordname||The name of the resource record. This column must
be present and may or may not contain a value:'
How you specify record names depends on from where you want to perform the bulk update:
|TTL||The time-to-live value, in seconds, for the resource record. This column must be present but may be left blank. To leave a column blank, leave a space between the commas that delimit the column.|
|recordtype||The type of resource record. Valid values are A, CNAME, MX, SRV, HINFO, TXT, and NAPTR. The following generic record types are also valid: A6, AAAA, AFSDB, APL, CAA, CERT, DHCID, DNAME, DS, IPSEC, ISDN, KEY, KX, LOC, MB, MG, MINFO, MR, NS, NSAP, PTR, PX, RP, RT, SINK, SPF, SSHFP, TLSA, WKS, and X25. This column must be present and must contain a value.|
|rdata||The data to define the resource record. Where multiple parameters are specified for the rdata, the values are separated with a space. This column must be present and must contain a value.|
|comment||A text string describing the resource record. After the record is added to Address Manager, this string appears in the Comments field when viewing the resource record’s Details tab. This column is optional. If you are adding user-defined fields to the record, this column must be present but may be left blank. To leave a column blank, leave a space between the commas that delimit the column.|
|user-defined field name||The name and value for a user-defined field. This column is optional. You can add an unlimited number of user-defined field values in each line. The user-defined field must already exist in Address Manager. The name of the user-defined field must be specified exactly as it appears in Address Manager. The value must match the type of value defined for the field. For more information on user-defined fields, refer to Object types and user-defined fields.|
Resource Record data
|A||Specify an IPv4 address for the host
For example: 192.168.188.200
|CNAME||Specify the host for the alias record.
For example: host1.example.com
|MX||Specify the priority and host name for the mail
exchanger record, with a single space between each value:
For example: 10 mail.example.com
|SRV||Specify the priority, weight, port, and host for
the service record, with a single space between each
For example: 10 50 5050 host1.example.com
To leave a value blank, use a 0 (zero) for the value.
In this example, the priority and weight values are set to 0 (zero): 0 0 5050 host1.example.com
|HINFO||Specify the central processor unit and operating
system for the host information record, with a single space
between each value. To include spaces in each value, the entire
rdata string must be enclosed in “quotation marks”. Values that
contain string must be enclosed in ““doubled”” quotation
For example: """Dual 1.2Ghz"" ""Linux 7.1"""
|TXT||Specify the text string for the text
For example: This is a text record
|NAPTR||Specify the order, preference, flags service,
regular expression, replacement, and for the naming authority
For example: 100 10 A E2U+email !^.*$!mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org!i .
|Generic record types||Specify the rdata string for the record type. Refer to the respective RFC of each record type for the required rdata string.|

add, srv.example.com., 3600, SRV, 10 0 50 host1.example.com, An SRV record
add, host4.example.com., 3600, AAAA, FD3B:4F43:E610:0:1322:33FF:FE44:5566
update, host1.example.com., 7200, A, 192.168.0.1, Updated the TTL
delete, host1.example.com., 7200, A, *
