Thanks for your patience. Basically I have a large dns server with
many zones etc. I would like to find all the A records and create an
IPv6 address for each IPv4 record, just to be nice I suppose, but I
think that the hosts should when they are added in the future, have
their IPv6 address created too.
Now, of course many of these hosts, don't have an IPv6 allocation to
them, so I suspect I would need an IPv4 to IPv6 compatiable address,
so that if an AAAA record is requested, they are given a vailid IPv6
How that, Sorry if I am not being clear enough.
