CNAME already exists with that record

cname

#1

Hi there,

New to cloudflare, and can’t to seem to find anything to help with the following issue,

An A, AAAA or CNAME record already exists with that host. (Code: 81053)

I’m trying to add two records as a CNAME:
Host:@ Value: selector1-benningtongreen-co-uk._domainkey.BenningtongreenLtd658.onmicrosoft.com
Host: @ Value: selector2-benningtongreen-co-uk._domainkey.BenningtongreenLtd658.onmicrosoft.com

I can’t figure out how to get these records onto the DNS management part of cloudflare

See below for existing records

Thank you!

You already have an A record for @ (the second in the list). You’d need to remove that first.


#3

Thanks! How would I go about adding the second one?


#4

Do you get an error message when you try to add it?

Generally speaking I am surprised about their instructions as naked domains shouldnt be CNAMEs, which is AFAIK in violation of RFC 1034.

An A, AAAA or CNAME record already exists with that host. (Code: 81053)

Same as before, are their any work arounds at all?

I’ll pass your comment on

I assumed that wouldnt be possible. Try to open a support ticket and maybe Cloudflare has some solution.


#7

Thanks for your help, I’ll submit a ticket

This doesn’t look correct, domainkey records should not be located at @. Most likely they want the record at selector1-benningtongreen-co-uk._domainkey and selector2-benningtongreen-co-uk._domainkey respectively.

True, that would make more sense.
