How to Create a new internal DNS CNAME record

Let me guess, you just started at a new job. My first idea as your boss would be to test how much of your resume is true, and how you handle new situations. So I'm going to ask you to do a job while withholding information so you'll have to ask and gather information (also called "learning something") about this task. The wrong approach would be to expect strangers on the internet to have that information instead of your colleagues.

lol. thats funny. you are psychic my friend. I'll take a WILD guess and say I obviously do not have enough information to get this done and yes I am new to this specific environment. Like i stated earlier i have never had to create a CNAME before so I had no idea the information given was insufficient. Do you happen to know what the proper steps are when I find out what DNS server? Thats all I need..Thanks in advance

To determine the authorative DNS server, try:
Code:
nslookup sparc27.ds.eod

or, if available on your particular version of Solaris:
Code:
dig sparc27.ds.eod

If you are unfamilar with either command, read the man pages for the command.
