Unable to create SRV DNS record; missing the _autodiscover service?

Hi all.  Having issues getting my GAL updates in place and I know the autodiscover settings for my Exchange server is an issue (it fails the utility tests).

I removed the previous A record in the DNS and attempted to create the proper (recommended) SRV record, but noticed the service drop down does  not have the "_autodiscover" entry therein.

Not sure how to make this appear... advise?  Thanks.

So simple, but thought there would have been some setup processes required to see that entry pre-loaded, but thanks.
