When you attempt to add a second CNAME record for a domain name to a Domain Name Service (DNS) server running Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server, the first CNAME record for the domain is deleted.


This behavior occurs by design. You can have only one CNAME for each record. The second CNAME entry overwrites the first without giving a warning message or error message.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server.
