Hi All.

I am trying to configure my exchange 2010 active sync in preparation for a new MDM solution. I have run Test-OutlookWebServices -ClientAccessServer "myexchangeserver" and everything comes back as passed and looks right. However, when I try to do the MS Remote Connectivity Analyzer is keep failing stating that it can't find https://mydomain.com/AutoDiscover/AutoDiscover.xml but it is clearly there and working. I am confused. Any suggestions? Thank you

Hello,

What names are on the SSL certificate that is installed on your Exchange server? You should have two names: something like mail.domain.com and autodiscover.domain.com. You should also have A records created in DNS for each of these that point to your Exchange server. If you have a single name cert, you need to create an SRV record in DNS that points to your autodiscover service like this:

Service: _autodiscover
Protocol: _tcp
Port Number: 443
Host: mail.domain.com

Ahhh so you actually need a DNS entry for autodiscover?  I did not know that.  The SSL cert is for mail.mydomain.com  I will add the needed DNS entries and report back.  Thank you

If you only have mail.mydomain.com on your SSL cert, you need the SRV record. Don't create an A record if you don't have autodiscover on your cert.

Ok.  I am creating the SRV but the fields are a little different.  It has Hostname: and Targetname:  Which is which?  I'm looking through the help section but it's not much help.    This is AT&T's explaination:
 Host name— The hostname of the machine providing the service.
*Target Name— The domain name of the host on which
the service is running

My guess would be host name should be "mail" and target name would be "domain.com"

Not 'autodiscover'?

"autodiscover" is the service name. You may need to contact AT&T support to get their assistance.

Just an FYI, the AT&T tech states that hostname=service and target=host.  Seems logical right?  LOL  Well I set up the SRV and I will have to wait for it to replicate before I can test.  Thank you again.
