Exchange 2007: Troubleshooting Autodiscovery

I have a situation with an Exchange 2003-2007 migration where I need to troubleshoot Autodiscovery. For some reason the Outlook/Entourage clients are not able to find the mail server via Autodiscovery.

What do you do to check the service is functioning correctly?
How about repairing it if not functioning?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As per my previous comment, you need a SSL certificate with autodiscover.domain.com as a subject alternative name, and make sure in your external DNS for your domain, you have the autodiscover record pointing to your server.
