"Another DNS record already exists with this host name" when adding an Address or CNAME record
In Office 365 Small Business, you try to add an Address (A) record or a CNAME record in the Office 365 portal. However, you get the following error message:
Another DNS record already exists with this host name. Type a different name.
To add a record other than a www record, use a different host name, or update the existing record.
This issue occurs if the DNS record already exists.
