    I am having a bit of a problem locating a decent example of how to implement MicrosoftDNS_ResourceRecord class / MicrosoftDNS_CNAMEType to edit a CNAME on my DNS server.

    I essentially need a VB Script that will utilize WMI to edit a CNAME on my DNS servers named "ActiveDB" with a FQDN of "db1.example.com". I know how to use DNScmd to edit, but I would highly prefer to use WMI.

    Can someone please provide an example of how to either:
    a) Update the DNS CNAME record, or,
    b) Delete the CNAME, then recreate it with the new FQDN?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Ken
