nsupdate cannot update DNS server

Hi

I'm trying to use nsupdate to add my server (HP-UX 11.11) A record to the DNS server but it doesn't seem to work.

The following is the command I used (taken from manual):

>update add newhost.example.com 86400 A 172.16.1.1

I received no error message and no confirmation message.
Do I need to do anything else after executing the above command?

Thanks !

NAME
nsupdate - Dynamic DNS update utility

SYNOPSIS
nsupdate [-d] [-v] [filename]

DESCRIPTION
nsupdate is used to submit Dynamic DNS Update requests as defined in
RFC2136 to a name server. This allows resource records to be added or
removed from a zone without manually editing the zone file. A single
update request can contain requests to add or remove more than one
resource record.

Hi Johnson

I know "nsupdate" is there, but SEP was recommending another command "npupdate".

BTW, "nsupdate" doesn't work for me.

Thanks.
