Reverse DNS for Azure VM created in Resource Manager

I have the same problem and found a solution. With an CNAME Record pointing to an PublicIpAddress DNS-Name I was abel to create the PublicIpAddress ReverseFqdn. After the Creation I have changed the CName back to an A Record Pointing to the new PublicIpAddress.

So Method 2 of the error works for me. Method 1 not.

Step by Step.

1.) New-AzureRmPublicIpAddress -Name tempstatic -ResourceGroupName cw-extesting -Location “west us” -AllocationMethod Static -domainnamelable tempstatic47115


3.) New-AzureRmPublicIpAddress -Name testingstatic -ResourceGroupName cw-extesting -Location “west us” -ReverseFqdn -AllocationMethod Static -domainnamelable testingstatic47115

4.) Change to A Record pointing to the Ip of 3. (testingstatic)

5.) Remove-AzureRmPublicIpAddress -Name tempstatic -ResourceGroupName cw-extesting

Hint: The ReverseFqdn works only in combination with domainnamelable because the method New-AzureRmPublicIpAddress checks if the domainnamelable is not empty to create the DNS Settings.
