Find my servername for iphone activesync in exchange 2010

When setting up an iphone for exchange activesync you require the servername.

In exchange 2003 i can confirm this name by going to:

Seervers, Protocols, SMTP.

Then right-clock on default SMTP Virtual Server. Properties.

Delivery, Advanced.

Then i can see the FQDN and Check DNS to make sure it is valid.

It is this servername i then use in my iphone and have exchange working fine. By the way it is "mail.domainname.com"

Myquestion is this:  

Where do i find the correct, exact, name to use in my iphone setting in exchange 2010?

I can not see "mail.domainname.com" anywhere.

where is this information located in exchange 2010 so i can set up a clients iphone on their exchange 2010 activesync?

Help appreciated.

Hope that makes sense

If you have autodiscover setup properly, you shouldn't need the servername.

If you don't then the servername should match the Fully Qualified Domain Name included in your SSL certificate, so you can either check that in Exchange System Manager> Server Config> Exchange Certificate or IIS Manager.

Just verify the URLs.  Open up EMC > Server Configuration > Client Access

You will see the active sync in there along with OWA and the rest, right-click and choose properties.

The host name is not defined by Exchange, but by DNS.  You're looking at the whole thing backwards.  

Ask someone who is in charge of DNS what host name they're using for ActiveSync.  If you're in charge of DNS, then just make up a host name.  If you still can't get ActiveSync to work, it may be the ActiveSync service/site is misconfigured.

NRhode: I can see the activesync URL but cannot get there. I get error "HTTP 505.0". But this may be because port 443 is not open? which i have requested.

paulmacd: I am in charge of DNS, but what do you mean by make one up?

All i need is to find out what is the servername i put into iphone to use exchange email.

So go into DNS and look up the server's name!  This isn't rocket science.

Maybe it's called mail.domainname.com.  Maybe it's called smtp.domainname.com, or imap.domainname.com, or pop.domainname.com, or activesync.domainname.com.  It doesn't matter what name you use since they almost certainly all point to the same machine.

Enter only..
remote.mydomain.com/owa


Try to enter that complete address into your Browser window to see if you get to the OWA logon screen.

Once you have the OWA address you can use, Test Outlook Connectivity to test Exchange

On the phone your server name would be remote.mydomain.com.  Make sure the ports are forwarding correctly.  Also make sure there is a DNS record (internal and external) for autodiscover.mydomain.com resolving to the exchange server.

Ok, think that the fact that port 443 is not open yet is def a factor.

Please just comfirm how to set up DNS for noth internal and external for autodiscover.

Will these be CNAME or A records etc?

Either or.  People use CNAME's and A records
