[Pdns-users] Creating SRV records (for DNS-SD purposes)

Obviously I'm doing something wrong - just have no clue what. More so
Previously I've been using the PowerAdmin web GUI. Worked great - but
seems like it's lacking recent development. And I couldn't get my SRV
record to be accepted.
So I've started using PowerDNS-Admin. Which also seems great. But...it
does not (at least for me at this time) appear to include support for
creating SRV records.
I'm currently using a MySQL backend. So I tried poking a record in
directly - which didn't do well.
Finally, thought I'd go right to the horse's...ear? pdnsutil
add-record. And...I get the very informative message "missing field at
the end of record content".
Since I freely admit I'm clueless on the correct format of the SRV
records (I'm simply trying to setup my LAN to hopefully be a little more
self-administrating) - I could use some guidance. I've never seen a
"full" example, particularly using pdnsutil, which would help
tremendously. My intent:
I have a zone "mydomain.lan". I have successfully created:
b._dns-sd._udp as a PTR, with value "mydomain.lan".
lb._dns-sd as a PTR, with value "mydomain.lan"
But now I am attempting:
pdnsutil add-record mydomain.lan
HP_Officejet_Pro_X576dw_MFP._tcp.mydomain.lan srv 0 0 631
Error: Parsing record content (try 'pdnsutil check-zone'): missing field
at the end of record content '0'
What perfectly obvious blunder am I making?
