Exchange 2007 Autodiscover using Group Policy - enters server name as cn path

Using Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2007 - on a Windows 2003 domain.
I am trying to setup autodiscover so our teachers can simply open outlook on any computer (including our terminal servers) and outlook inserts the correct server & username without the member of staff knowing anything about it.

It applies the policy fine, but when the user opens outlook, it shows the servername as:
/o=school/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=EXCHSRV  
rather than simply "Exchsrv".

If I change the long CN path to simply "Exchsrv" and press check name, it finds it and we are ok.

We used to have Exchange 2003, but now we run Exchange 2007 and the 2003 server is no longer (physically went up in smoke!!)

Anyone seen this before?

Thanks
Matt

Why aren't you using a PRF file? You can pre-populate the servername and then enter the username as %username% and then Outlook configures itself.

Although if your autodiscover has been configured correctly then you shouldn't need to do anything with group policy or whatever, as Outlook should do it all for the user - that is the point of the feature.
