Microsoft Exchange 2010 Configuration - DNS Names Servers - DNS Entries - ZoneEdit DNS - GoDaddy Domain

Hi,

I have an Exchange Server 2010 environment and my internal email is working perfectly fine.  My external email was working perfectly fine but now it isn't.  The major change was that GoDaddy no longer hosts my DNS for my Domain Account I have registered with them.  

Here's my scenario:

Internal Domain: Domain.Local
External Domain: Domain.com (Purchased at GoDaddy)
DNS NameServers: Using ZoneEdit for DNS Management instead of GoDaddy.
IP Address: Dynamic NOT Static
DynDNS:  Using DynDNS to resolve my IP to the location since there is no Static IP ONLY Dynamic
Router: Configurations have already been set up with the DynDNS entry configured in the router, and the correct things are being forwarded to the correct locations

I'm just a little confused on how to get my email working for sending/receiving outside my internal network.  I have everything configured within the Exchange server so that's not the problem because I had all this working before.  Since I changed over to ZoneEdit for the DNS stuff, it's just not working correctly.  So what I'm asking is what would I have to do on GoDaddy's side for configurations, and then what would I have to do on ZoneEdits side for configurations.  This is probably going to be in regards to "A" records" "@" records, etc...

Please explain in detail if possible or we can do step-by-step with what to do.  I can provide any information needed with screen shots and am available to respond all throughout the day.


Thanks

Are you stating that you do not have a static IP Address for MX Record to be placed on internet world?

If that be it, you are in for trouble.

well, you will have to use cname on your MX record, that not a big deal.

However, with dynamic IP address, you will run into trouble of reverse lookup which it will not able to resolve properly. Hence, you will able to send/receive from your server, but the other end might not able to receive it .

to counter this, you will have to get a mail relay service to relay your email to you, like www.mailguard.com.au (or symantec cloud or other 3rd party mail relay system)
Do you have a public NS to even resolve your MX, A and CNAME since Go Daddy is no longer hosting any of your public records.

Since I don't have a Static IP for the Exchange Server, DynDNS Agent is running on the Exchange Server.

Please advise on how to proceed.

Do you have a public NS (name server)?
If not you need to get one ASAP. This is the only way that the outside world can find your domain name.  Who is handling/hosting your domain name now?

Hi,

I have my Domain Name purchased through GoDaddy.com.

Please advise on how to proceed.

But you stated that you have left Go daddy. So who is your Domain provider now ?  That is who will be your dns service for public DBS resolution.
Avatar of Lumious

Hi,

Interesting.  I was thinking that I could use ZoneEdits DNS Name Servers to resolve my Domain name that I purchased at GoDaddy.

If I have to switch back to GoDaddy's NameServers instead of using ZoneEdits, please let me know how to proceed.

Thanks
Go daddy host your domain, not zonedit.
Go daddy is the DNS telling request to go to zonedit for all resolution of your domain. So unless zonedit can host your domain name the you will need to go back to go daddy
Avatar of Lumious

ASKER

Hi,

I'm going to go back to GoDaddy I guess.  I've logged into GoDaddy and changed the following for the DNS Name Servers:

Instead of selecting "I have specific nameservers for my domains", I have selected, "I have a hosting account with these domains".

Here are the rest of the options that I had to chose from.  I believe I chose the correct one.

------------------------------
I want to park my domains — This option parks your domain name on our parked servers. When someone opens your domain name from a Web browser, our default parking page displays.

I want to forward my domains — Use this option if you want to forward this domain name to another URL. See Forwarding or Masking Your Domain Name for more information.

I have a hosting account with these domains — Use this option when your domain name is hosted with us.

I have specific nameservers for my domains — This option indicates that you are hosting your domain name with another company (enter the two or more nameservers your hosting provider gave you), or you have custom nameservers you want to use for this domain name.

--------------------------------------

Please advise on how to proceed.

Hi,

I'm just waiting for the changes to take effect on my Domain at GoDaddy so that the Name Servers are at them instead of ZoneEdit.  But I thought that ZoneEdit offers you 2 Zone Names that can be dedicated towards Domains so that they can Host your Domain that you purchased else where on their DNS Name Servers?

See image below of what it now shows on my ZoneEdit after making the change on GoDaddy.

User generated image
I thought I read somewhere that if you purchased your Domain at Godaddy, you can specify other Name Servers, thus utilizing ZoneEdits Name Servers since they offer you 2 free Zones to use with a Domain?

I'm just trying to find the best way to do this.  Once the changes go through on GoDaddy we can continue testing things.  If we still want to go with GoDaddy we can, or if we want to use ZoneEdit in some way from my research if that makes sense, we can try that.

Please advise on how to proceed.

I am not 100% sure why you canceled  Go Daddy.
If ZONEEDIT was handling as your NS then Go Daddy just needs to point to that.
Avatar of Lumious

ASKER

I haven't cancelled anything.  I've purchased my Domain at Godaddy.com.  The only thing I changed was switch it back to GoDaddy's NameServers instead of specifying ZoneEdits Nameservers since they offer you 2 free Zones to use.

But as of right now, it's set back to GoDaddy's NameServers.

What are some suggestions on how to process either with GoDaddy or ZoneEdit.

Feel free to respond whenever you get a chance.

Thanks.
To answer your question about Domain Name Purchases.
You can point your DNS to other NS, but you still need some service to hold the Domain Name.
So if you cancel Go Daddy (Not Transfer) then there is no service host your Domain which means that your Domain Name is available for purchase.  (i.e. microsoft.com or apple.com cancel their  subscription with Go Daddy I then can purchase those domain name)  Since Go Daddy host the domain you need to let their DNS server know your domain Name NS.
This is the first point on contact.  This NS not being there then  outside users cannot resolve your domain name. It seems that you made a mistake by canceling your service with GO DADDY before transferring.

You need to have some service hosting your Domain name.
If ZoneEdit is a public DNS then just change NS IP on Go Daddy to point to Zoneedit.
It is pretty straight forward.
Avatar of Lumious

ASKER

Hi,

So right now my Domain is with GoDaddy and the Domain is set to GoDaddy for the Name Servers.

GoDaddy Name Servers:
- NS17.DomainControl.Com
- NS18.DomainControl.Com

If I want ZoneEdit to act as the Name Servers instead of GoDaddy would I only have to change the Name Servers section in GoDaddy to ZoneEdits 2 Name Servers that they provided me?

See image below:

User generated image
ZoneEdit Name Servers have provided me with the following:
- ns4.zoneedit.com
- ns12.zoneedit.com

If this is correct, I will also need assistance on setting up the correct configurations in ZoneEdit with the "A" records, or "CNAME" records, etc...I'm a little confused on how to do all that.  I definitely need my webmail to work publicly so that anyone/anywhere can open a web browser and get to it so I'm guessing this is where I would set everything up with the records.

Please advise when you get a chance.

Hi,

Before we try to switch over to using ZoneEdits NameServers, I would like to at least get GoDaddy's setting correct so that my email can flow outside my internet network to the outside world again.  

Please advise on what I would have to either change or add in GoDaddy's settings for "A" records, "CNAME" records, "@" records, etc...and if I have to add anything into my Active Directory as well.

As stated before, I'm using DynDNS on my Exchange Server because I don't have a Static IP.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Your AD should not have to be touched.
If you have zonedit as your NS you need to change what the ip-address for the NS is currently to zonedit on Go Daddy.  The A, CNAMES and MX need to be created on zonedit.  I think that is it.

From what I can see you have configured both DNS with your A, CNAME & MX records.
The one thing you need to change is Go Daddy NS  Value to zone edit NS value.

Once changed you will need to allow for time to propagate.

To test open command prompt and enter NSLOOKUP and press return
Type set type=all
Then you what to enter your domain name (contoso.com)
You should get a return of the Nameservers, MX and all other DNS registered values
Avatar of Lumious

ASKER

Hi,

If I go into GoDaddy and change the NameServers to the ones listed in ZoneEdits, then I will no longer have the ability to change anything in GoDaddys DNS Manager.  So after making the changes, GoDaddy is only going to be hosting my Domain, not the DNS.  In ZoneEdit, you can see that I have an "@" record on the top pointing to the IP Address of what I have in GoDaddy's "A" record on the top.  Once I make the changes in GoDaddy to ZoneEdits DNS Servers, that IP Address will no longer work in ZoneEdits "@" entry that I have in there.

So wouldn't everything not work because of that?

Thanks
Not sure.
You should be able to still manage records on both as long as you keep paying GD the fee to host your domain name. Other than that you do not need GD DNS other than that all request to goto zonedit.  

Who or if your website is hosted by?
Avatar of Lumious

ASKER

Hi,

I don't have a website for the Domain. I've simply purchased the Domain from GoDaddy.  They offer free DNS hosting with the purchase of a Domain if you use their NameServers, and you can potentially set up a free website with advertising.

I believe once I specify ZoneEdits DNS NameServers instead of GoDaddy's, the DNS Management on GoDaddy's side with creating "A" records, "@" records, etc...goes away.

Thanks

Hi,

Ok you are going to find this one really funny and confusing.  I started up my Exchange Servers and waited for everything to load up.  I haven't changed anything on my ZoneEdit or GoDaddy settings from the last screen shots I sent.  I then tried to go to webmail.mydomain.com and I got to the log in screen.  I then signed in and sent an email to an outside source, my gmail account.  And I received it.

I seriously don't get that?  Is it actually only using GoDaddy's settings and not ZoneEdits settings since I haven't changed the DNS Servers over yet?  I'm extremely confused right now.

Please help me understand what's happening here.

Hi,

I'm going to be updating with my current configs that I have in GoDaddy.  Everything has been set back to default.  I have my Domain purchased through GoDaddy and using their Name Servers, NOT ZoneEdit.  I have WebSite Tonight Free set up against the Domain so that when people navigate to the website, they get a default screen I set up through GoDaddy.

My internal email is working but my not outside.  I would like my Webmail to work so that I can sign in to my email anywhere.  I'm not going to be using GoDaddy's email service because I have my own Exchange Server.

Please let me know how to go about this.  I will provide what settings I have set up in GoDaddy and we can discuss what to change, what to take out, what to add, etc...Remember, I have a static IP, NOT Dynamic.  I also have DynDNS set up on the Exchange Server so that if my Dynamic IP changes, that won't matter because the DynDNS will update automatically.

What is your reason for going to ZoneEdit again?
Can you register Domain names with them?
Avatar of Lumious

ASKER

Hi,

The reason for going with ZoneEdit for the DNS Name Servers was because over the years it's been known that they have a better more reliable outcome when it comes to that as opposed to GoDaddy.  That's why at first, instead of leaving the DNS Name Servers with GoDaddy where my Domain Name was registered, I decided to make ZoneEdit the DNS Name Servers.  But since this is causing too much of a headache, I'm going to be using GoDaddy instead for the DNS Name Servers.

You can register Domain Names with ZoneEdit, but for right now, I just want to get this email working so that I can send/receive email from all source type emails, and so that my webmail.domain.com works correctly so that you can log into your email from wherever.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Static is always better if you are running a business.
If the ISP business class service offers this you probably get other nice features like the ablitity to host your own sites or other services like active sync over the proper port channels.

What I not understanding is if this worked why is not not working now.

Hi,

As you can see from the images I posted on GoDaddy, those are the settings that are configured as of right now.  If we are going to give this another try, what would I add to the GoDaddy Configs?  Please provide examples of what I would add in order for us to test this out.  Right now internal mail works perfectly fine.  Sending email outside the network only sometimes works with the current configs in GoDaddy.  Please let me know if there is another way to go about this.

GoDaddy is hosting the website for the Domain.com.  As of right now for the configurations that are in there, the email is whatever GoDaddy has set up by Default.  But I don't want to use what they have for the email.  So I would have to enter in configurations that refer to my setup so that we are using my Exchange Servers, my webmail, etc...and have everything accessible from the outside network.

Please advise when you have a chance.

What is SecureServer.net
This is what is coming as your MX record when I do an NSLOOKUP.
The MX record with the lowest cost (0) needs to point to what ever ip-address you ISP has issued.
Since you are dynamic  and you stated that you are using DYNDNS your MX record needs to be whatever DNS value is reference in DYNDNS
i.e LumiousTech.dyndns.org =208.109.181.9 your Go Daddy MX record needs to point to LumiousTech.dyndns.org for mail to route to your server.
Just think of your IP-Address as a House address and if you move ever month how would the mail get to you, but since you register you house address automatically/Dynamically with a service like DYNDNS if you move your address changes , but to the mail system still references the same name.

Since DynDns.org holds the true A-Record you are just associating your MX Record on GD with the CNAME (AKA alias) that will change with the true A-Record.

Does this make more sense?

GD MX record needs to have  LumiousTech.dyndns.org as the Point To
But when I just tried to pin LumiousTech.dyndns.org I received

ping: cannot resolve LumiousTech.dyndns.org: Unknown host

It seems that you have issues with your DYNDNS.org registering.

You can also get your issued IP from your ISP and put that in GD DNS.
Avatar of Lumious

ASKER

Hi,

The reason why the pinging isn't working and the reason why you see the securserver.net, is because I was doing maintenance and took out the entries I put in there.  I didn't want to leave the entries in their because when people traveled to webmail.lumioustech.com from outside the network they came to the SonicWALL Login Screen.  So for security purposes, I took it out last night and will continue to change the settings this morning for more testing.  Sorry for the confusion.

I will post my GoDaddy configs shortly with what I have in the DNS settings.

Again, that IP address that is in there for the Host A Record of (208.109.181.9) is the IP GoDaddy gave me for the Domain.com.  That's not actually my IP Address from Comcast where my Exchange Server is being Hosted for the webmail.

Please advise when you have a chance.

And if you can't ping anything, I'm going to be shutting the servers down later tonight.  They will be on all throughout the day everyday, but sometimes get shut down at night.  I will leave them on for a couple more hours from now.

With the current configurations in the SonicWALL in the link and the GoDaddy Configs for DNS, when you try to access webmail.domain.com, it brings you right to the SonicWALL Login interface, which I don't understand at all.  I've used DynDNS with FTP and what not, and it has never taken me to the Login Screen for my SonicWALL.  I'm guessing it has to do something with the GoDaddy entry.

Hi,

I haven't yet formed the initial question that I'm going to be posting, but I'm probably going to look at the Exchange Server someone and see what else needs to be done.  I haven't set up any records in DNS Manager at GoDaddy for being able to connect via phone, haven't installed any certificates so that you don't get that Certificate error when going to webmail.domain.com, etc...There is just a lot I'm guessing that has to be done in order for a correct Exchange Server setup to be complete.

Not sure how to form the next question though but I guess I will take it one step at a time.  Any suggestions would be great on the next steps?

Thanks
With regards to DNS it most likely be LumiousTech.dyndns. address for your active sync as well as your OWA.
You will need to make the correct NAT rules on your sonic wall to route the activesync and OWA traffic (port 443) to your CAS Server.  

From what I saw in your GD images webmail is pointing to CNAME of DYNDNS which is what you want.

When it comes to the cert you will need to create a CSR from your IIS server and submit that to a trusted CA (like GoDaddy) and they will then issue you a cert that you will download and import into your IIS server.  

I will be more then happy to help.  

Go ahead and compose then post the new question.

Haha.

Thanks,
I just noticed that some of your replies were at off hours, but that could be me just not noticing when the e-mail comes in.

Have a good weekend.  
One more question:  How long have you been involved with networking?

I've been working with so many different type environments here and there consulting all throughout Boston for about 3-4 years now in the IT business.  I can say that I don't enjoy the networking side of being a server administrator, but it comes with the job.  I've finally found my dream in house job and got out of the consulting business, haha.
Good for u
