Records can be disabled in Constellix DNS if you want to remove them from the name servers without removing the record configuration in the Constellix DNS control panel. A disabled record will remain in the control panel with full configuration in tact. However the name servers will return an NXDOMAIN response when queried for this record (as if the record does not exist).

Disabling Records

1. In the sidebar menu click Managed DNS and then select Domains

2. Select the Domain Name you would like to transfer.

3. Under the records section, select a record by clicking the Check Box. Then click the edit_icon icon to edit a record. Please note, you can not edit a record that has not been committed following its creation.

4. Click the check mark for Disable Record (NX Domain). It will alert you that the record has been disabled. Click Save and Close. The record can be enabled again by unchecking the same box and saving the changes.
