I need to rename my internal domain name

Hello I have a system with internal domain name "domain.local" , I need to change the domain name to be as external name because the Exchange autodiscover is not working correctly.

Can I rename the Domain Name?

My system is 2 DC window 2012, and TMG Windows 2008R2, and Exchange 2013 Windows 2012.

Thanks

Here is a step by step on what to do for this:


You can run the following commands to get the External Urls:
Get-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory   | ft server,*lur* -AutoSize
Get-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory | ft server,*lur* -AutoSize
Get-ClientAccessServer           | ft name,  *lur* -AutoSize
Get-EcpVirtualDirectory          | ft server,*lur* -AutoSize
Get-OabVirtualDirectory          | ft server,*lur* -AutoSize
Get-OwaVirtualDirectory          | ft server,*lur* -AutoSize
Get-WebServicesVirtualDirectory  | ft server,*lur* –AutoSize

Then change your internal urls to match the external urls:

Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity HostName -AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri https://mail.yourdomain.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity "HostName\EWS (Default Web Site)" -InternalUrl https://mail.yourdomain.com/ews/exchange.asmx

Set-OABVirtualDirectory -Identity "HostName\oab (Default Web Site)" -InternalUrl https://mail.yourdomain.com/oab

These commands are for Exchange?

Yes they are.

This will simply let your internal domains now resolve to external domain names.

Really I having troubles to make the commands,

The external name is mail.enkar.net

Can you help me with the commands.

Ok so it seems you do not have an external url value defined.

So your easiest solution would be:
Creating a new internal DNS value for
enkar-exchange.enkar.com (or whatever a valid domain extension would be for you)
You will need to be able to show  proof of a DNS name

Then create a dns entry to point that record to the ip address:
enkar-exchange.enkar.local currently resolves to.

Is this a new deployment ?
Or a working scenario that is now broken ?

Hello becraig,

It's a new scenario, I have a Domain controller with a DNS server the Domain name is ENKAR,local the internal DNS can solve the ENKAR-EXCHANGE.ENKAR.local name (the exchange server).

In other Hand I have configured the external urls. I send you a log.

I'm estranged with the Get-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory because there aren't any url internal neither external.

Any help?

Thank you very much.

There is no need to define any for auto-discover, that being said if you are just building this out I  would suggest you go ahead and map you Internal Urls to match your External URLS (as you will not be able to acquire a cert with the .local names.


More info on why you do not need to define urls for auto discover:

Ok but one question more I'll use the internal as "mail.enkar.net".

Have I to do something in my internal DNS to redirect mail.enkar,net to the Excahgne IP?

Thanks again.

Nope once you set the internal URL Exchange knows what to do beneath the hood.

After all these are all IIS virtual directories, so since your external URLs go to the same site there will be no added config needed.

But still having issue with autodiscover.

I'm trying

https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com
mail test@enkar.net
user ENKAR\test
mail.enkar.net
ENKAR-EXCHANGE.ENKAR.local

Can you try and give me your impression?

thanks

Use the following to help troubleshoot:
Test-OutlookWebServices -identity:test@enkar.net | ft * -AutoSize -Wrap


Let me know the output.

Ok so I have reviewed your output and several of your services still show .local as the internal URL:
[PS] C:\>Get-OabVirtualDirectory          | ft server,*lur* -AutoSize

Server         InternalUrl                            ExternalUrl
------         -----------                            -----------
ENKAR-EXCHANGE https://enkar-exchange.enkar.local/OAB https://mail.enkar.net/OAB


[PS] C:\>Get-WebServicesVirtualDirectory  | ft server,*lur* -AutoSize

Server         InternalUrl                                          ExternalUrl
------         -----------                                          -----------
ENKAR-EXCHANGE https://enkar-exchange.enkar.local/EWS/Exchange.asmx https://mail.enkar.net/EWS/Exchange.asmx

Open in new window


I think you should be good to go once you correct those.
