Exchange 2010 autodiscover issues

Posted on 2014-02-16
Last Modified: 2014-03-08
I'm wrapping up the migration from 2003 to 2010.  I'm having issues with autodiscover on my Android.  I have not tested iOS yet..  But.. The Microsoft Remote Connectivity tester is successful when testing autodiscover.  I also purchased a SSL cert.. So thats good.  When I try to add an Exchange account on my Adroid v4.3 is enter in email address and PW.. After about 30 secs I get a 'Setup could not finish.  A network error has occurred..."  Any idea?  Every test I perform is successful except when I actually try to use autodiscover..

Is the device on your LAN when you are trying to set it up? As hinted to above, if that is the case then you need to have internal records for both Autodiscover and the ActiveSync host name that resolve to your internal IP address of your server. AKA split DNS.

It's not on my LAN.. But.. Local and remote DNS is working.  If I access it sends me to the autodiscover web app on the Exchange server's IIS install..  And asks for a PW.

I have all of the correct DNS records..  Both internet records and local DNS records.. Really odd.. I just don't see what the problem is.

Autodiscover on mobile devices is very hit and miss. It can vary between vendors and even between OS versions on the same vendor.
if you configure it manually, does it work?

You have mentioned a redirect - I find that isn't as reliable and prefer to use either in the SSL certificate and an A record, or an SRV record.
