I have a Windows 2003 Exchange Server with a fully qualified domain name of ServerName.domain1.com. We use an external company that looks after our domains and firewall services.
Should I have an “A” record set up against the fully qualified domain name of the server? We have an “A” record for the domain and against the OWA address of mail.domain1.com but not the FQDN of the Exchange Server.
I’m trying to understand best practice in terms of setting up DNS entries for Exchange Servers.
