I'm trying to create DNS zones from command line under Windows NT with MS DNS Service. I've read that the tool to do this is dnscmd.exe that comes with the resource kit.

After installing it I cannot make it work and coudln't find any documentation on it.

Can somebody give me an example of how this works?

Thanks

Yes it has. You have an MSDOS window from which you can run commands.

Because I want to automate the signup process for our customers who purchase through the web and doing it graphically is a manual task we would like to avoid.

You may have seen this already, but I'll post it for the common good:

You can also use Dnscmd.exe to write scripts and for remote administration. For more information about Dnscmd.exe, see Windows 2000 Support Tools Help. For information about installing and using the Windows 2000 Support Tools and Support Tools Help, see the file Sreadme.doc in the directory \Support\Tools on the Windows 2000 operating system CD.
The quote is from Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/WINDOWS2000...f_imp_nsoi.asp
