Spectrum giving error when adding application

Hi everyone,

Spectrum is giving this error when I attempt to add an application for SSH protocol.

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

The application is a virtual machine I’m trying to add.

Have you checked if you have an existing DNS record for the domain? :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Albert,

I do have an A record for the virtual machine.

So I would need to delete the A record and it would “essentially” still be through Spectrum?

Yup! Creating a Spectrum Application will create a DNS record containing a Cloudflare IP address. Traffic to that IP address will be forwarded to your origin server.
