Our domain on a Win 2008 server is domain.local...server name is server.domain.local
Does this mean that:
1) autodiscover.domain.local should be on the UCC certificate (as opposed to .com)?
2) Autodiscover should be looking for server.domain.local/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml (as opposed to .com)?
Right now, I have autodiscover.domain.com on the cert and in the configuration on the server - and Outlook 2007 cannot find the autodiscover file. But if I browse to the .local version in IE, I get responses.
Is it possible to have autodiscover as a .local address - but still use other web services externally by mapping .com addresses to the .local services (i.e. OWA, Active-Sync)?
I also noticed that the autodiscover test in Outlook searches for a number of variations of the file name / domain name - is one preferred over the other or is it fine as long as it can find one of them? (i.e. "domain.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml" vs "autodiscover.domain.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml")
