Adding DNS Records - SRV & SOA

Good Morning,

  • Can’t get SRV to upload, what can I do?
  • I don’t see an option for type “SOA” to be added, what can I do?
  • How do I add more than one value to on record without it stating it’s a duplicate?

The SOA record is taken care of by CloudFlare. Setting the SRV record, as it’s something that may or may not be applicable to CloudFlare (a SIP server, e.g.) and thus I’d need more info from you. Setting duplicate records isn’t necessary; setting conflicting records isn’t possible.

Is it possible to send you an email to show you what I’m referring to?

If you’re concerned about privacy, then I’d prefer you not send an email. Perhaps you could use redacted records as your example(s). :slightly_smiling_face:

_autodiscover.123.or SRV. 0 0 443 autodiscover.123.or
123.org. SOA. ns-1272.awsdns-31.or postmaster.123.org. 201

  • the _autodiscover one – we get the following error when inserted: DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004) invalid or missing name.

  • for the SOA does this mean we do not have to insert this in the list of DNS records since you stated that it’s taken care of by CloudFlare?

  • I was able to figure the others out

Normally an SRV record isn’t needed for autodiscover but if you were going ot a one it should look similar to the sip record here: https://github.com/irazasyed/dns-zone-files/blob/master/files/office-365.txt

_autodiscover._tls	1800	IN	SRV		100	1	443	autodiscover.123.or.

And yes, SOA records aren’t something you need to create with CloudFlare. If you use an external tool such as https://dnschecker.org/all-dns-records-of-domain.php you’ll see what records are currently configured.
