I am working on setting up my exchange 2007 system.

it is a single server setup.  The server is located in a datacenter, and has 3 public ips.  It functions as its own DC, DNS, and Exchange server.  It is also connected directly to the internet.

No computers are on the domain, they are individuals, and so the plan is to have them all connect using outlook anywhere exclusively.

I have setup the domain as bilskygroup.com

the servers name is exchange. so exchange.bilskygroup.com.

I have been reading through a bunch of tutorials about setting up the autodiscover service, but i can't seem to get it right.


i have been testing my config using the tool at www.testexchangeconnectivity.com, but it keeps on failing.


So far config wise, i have done the following listed on the blog:  http://exchange-genie.blogspot.com/2007/07/autodiscover-ad-attribute.html

i have specified all of the internal and external urls as requested.  they are set to https://exchange.bilskygroup.com/*

i also created a "A" record that points to autodiscover.bilskygroup.com->primary ip

when i runtest-outlookwebservices -identity (a user) |fl,  it completes successfully.

I have the system set to use basic authentication.


I am out of ideas for things to try.

thanks,

First thing first, I would not put your DC out there directly connected to the internet...and second I think the autodiscovery is only for machines joined to the domain on the inside of your network...
