I have written a custom service to use in our domain. I have a client application that needs to find where the service is running within the domain. Is it possible to create an SRV record for my custom service in the Active Directory domain? I don't know a lot about SRV records, but it appears that they are what I need to make this whole thing work. I could tell my client to query DNS to find my custom service and then get the server from that.

Any help would be appreciated!

See attchaed. From DNS on their DC you can "add Other Record" which you can choose SRV.

The fields then can be chosen either by the drop-down box or free text.

Hope this helps
