Exchange 2007 Autodiscover using SRV recrods

upictech asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I am having an issue with testing Outlook Anywhere using the SRV record method. The record is setup for our domain but when I run the Test e-mail AutoDiscover from Outlook 2007 I am told that the SRV recrod failed with an error of 0x800C8206

2 Lines from Outlook 2007 Log file:
"Srv Record lookup for domain.org starting"
"Srv Record lookup for domain.org FAILED (0x800C8206)"

I have been trying to find out what 0x800C8206 translates to and haven't yet found anything. I know that the autodicover service works because I also made an A record of "autodiscover.domain.org" and the XML response is returned.

In addition I am also able to query the DNS record of _autodiscover._tcp.domain.org from the system I am testing from and the correct record is returned.

I would like to use the SRV record method becuase we host many different domains for various companies. Having to setup mutlple CAS servers with SSL's would be a bit too expensive.

Any help would be appreciated.
