8.10. Deleting Records from DNS Zones

8.10.1. Deleting Records with the Web UI

To delete only a specific record from the resource record:
  1. Open the Identity tab, and select the DNS subtab.
  2. Click the name of the DNS zone.
  3. In the DNS Resource Records tab, click the name of the resource record.
  4. Click the Delete link by the name of the record type to delete. This deletes only that record type while leaving the other configuration intact.
Alternatively, delete all of the records for the resource in the zone:
  1. Open the Identity tab, and select the DNS subtab.
  2. Click the name of the DNS zone.
  3. In the DNS Resource Records tab, select the checkbox by the name of the resource record to delete. This deletes the entire record.
  4. Click the Delete link at the top of the zone records page.

8.10.2. Deleting Records with the Command Line

Records are removed from the zone using the ipa dnsrecord-del command. As with adding records, records are deleted using an option that specifies the type of record (--recordType-rec) and the record value.
For example, to remove the A type record:
$ ipa dnsrecord-del example.com www --a-rec 10.64.14.213
If you run the ipa dnsrecord-del command without any options, the command prompts for information about the record to delete.
Alternatively, using the --del-all option removes all associated records for the zone.
