I am trying to understand writing the script to update dns upon failover in Doubletake. I found the wapi and Function Set-IBDNSARecord. I am truly sunk as i don't know the language first and foremost but also because everything i try needs another module loaded. Can anyone advise on direction to take as I am running out of time and hoping someone has encountered something similar and can shine some light.

I thought i had better give you more information. The software double take is on two servers say DT1 and DT2. It has a job that copies particular files from DT1 to DT2 continuously. If an error is found there is a place for a failover script that should tell IB to redirect traffic to DT2 and then there is a place for the failback script upon issues being fixed\resolved
I have put into IB that if DT1 is down route to DT2 but DT has its own parameters for initiating failover.
