Exchange 2013/Outlook Setup/DNS
Posted on 2014-03-24
I have commissioned a Windows 2012 R2 Domain and Exchange 2013 Server system.
I have configured both of the servers as DCs (although later I see this is not recommended but not forbidden).
I'm having problems connecting Outlook (2013 & 2010) up to the Exchange Server. The only method I can use is to let the setup run automatically and then although Outlook works in the Account Properties the Server is shown as firstname.lastname@example.org rather than TC-EXS.companyname.co.uk.
I'm suspecting this is due to a misconfiguration in my DNS. I cannot get a recursive query to pass, although all clients have access to the outside world without issue.
TC-ADS (Primary DC) IP:10.0.0.201
Primary DNS 10.0.0.201
Secondary DNS 10.0.203
TC-EXS(Secondary DC) IP:10.0.0.203
Primary DNS 10.0.0.203
Secondary DNS 10.0.0.201
I have DNS Forwarders set up the IP Addresses found on my WAN connection through my ADSL router.
Any help or pointers much appreciated as I'd like to clear this up before I commission any further accounts.
