Manage static record sets

Static record sets return pre-configured DNS records. The record data for each DNS record type is managed as its own static record set. You can manage Static record sets using Static, Mirror Failover, Weighted, and Performance property types. You cannot use Static record sets with Geographic Map, CIDR Map, AS Map, or IP Version Selector property types. Static record sets do not support DNSSEC-related record types, AKAMAITLC record types, or AKAMAICDN record types.
