Autodiscover 2007

We have 6 exchange 2007 servers globally want to use Outlook 2007 and I've been reading about Autodiscover..

The first question relates to the UC certs - we've established a test lab with 2 servers, I assume if we add to one of the certs - won't that single server be hit heavily by all users repeatedly? (1000 users globally)

Additonally, one site uses multiple email domains, since autodiscover is based on the email address - I assume we need multiple configurations for Autodiscover (i.e. SRV records in each domain) and both autodiscover.1st domain and autodiscover.2nd domain in the UC cert?

we're under pressure here for a quick roll out.. oh the joys of non-techincal management!

    Accepted Solution

    SRV records mean you dont need the AutoDiscover name on the cert as you just point it at another name that is already on the cert like

    You can use hardware/windows load balancing to send incoming connections on port 443 to the load balanced name and have that split traffic amongst your CAS servers.

    Internally in AD, outlook will AutoDiscover off of whatever CAS is in it's own AD site and will find the CAS via the SCP object in AD, it will only fallback to DNS if the SCP object cannot be found.
