I am using windows 2003 as my DNS server and the question I have relates to domain forwarding using DNS.

I have a domain whatever.com and I want to forward it to somethingelse.com (I am using the full www) using DNS, I have the first domain set up on my nameserver but the domain I am forwarding it to, I have no control over. I think I need to set up a CNAME but I could be wrong as when I try and do it, DNS console gives me an error message saying that I canít add the CNAME as there are resource records on the domain which mean I canít add it.

I am setting up the alias name as www and pointing it to the second domain as above Ė I have SOA and A records on the domain, what I am doing wrong ?
