In this blog post I will show you how to create a DNS A record with Ansible on a Windows Server 2019 DNS Server.
This post follows the post I have shown you on how to create a DNS zone on a Windows Server DNS Server using Ansible.
The playbook that you are about to see is using a new module for creating DNS records. This module is part of the Ansible 2.10 collections feature that uses Ansible-galaxy.
This module will work with Ansible 2.9 however you will need to run the following command first and install the collection that has the module.
ansible-galaxy collection install community.windows
The playbook below will create a DNS record on my Domain Controller host. The A record name is testserver with an IP address of 10.1.1.21 and the DNS zone name is svc.corporate.local
--- - name: "Create a DNS record" hosts: dc tasks: - name: "Crerate A record" community.windows.win_dns_record: name: "testserver" type: "A" value: "10.1.1.21" zone: "svc.corporate.local"
All you need to do next is run the playbook and you re done. for more Ansible for Windows article visit our Ansible page.
